King Bob. Master Dylan. Folk genius. Fake. Whatever you wanna call him, Bob Dylan shares a plane of influence and regard with few other living musicians. But you know that. Last time we checked in with Dylan's live show, he could still throw down a stinging guitar solo, too. So what if his voice sounds like truck tires on a gravel road? The man's recent albums are still full of great songs, and he even manages to make Christmas music that's not too embarrassing.

So, then: Dylan plays the Fox Theater in Oakland on Tuesday, August 24. Tickets officially go on sale this Sunday. (The presale began yesterday.) And you hard-core Dylan fans oughta consider catching the master at the Monterey County Fairgrounds on the previous Saturday, August 21.

Here's hoping he brings the cowboy hat.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
