You were scared there for a while, weren't you? You checked the tour dates on the Arcade Fire's web site a while back, saw that the last ones scheduled were for the East Coast and Europe, and worried that the band would neglect to play out here on the West Coast anytime soon -- that it might take many months before coming to a state where, I feel qualified to say, we certainly know a thing or two about the suburbs.

Be relieved. Today the the Arcade Fire announced a show at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley on October 2, and a show at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur on October 5. Tickets for the Greek show go on sale next weekend (August 22). Do we have to tell you that seeing the Arcade Fire at the Greek Theater will most likely be, um, crazy awesome? We'll tell you anyway: crazy-awesome. As three members explain in this video interview with Terry Gilliam (see it after the jump), it's one of the band's favorite places to play as well.

  • 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.'"
