Lazer Sword
Rainbow Arabia
Religious Girls
Sister Crayon
8 p.m., $12-$14

As Lazer Sword, producers Low Limit and Lando Kal spearheaded San Francisco's experimental beat scene for a few years. Now that they're making their bones roaming the country and the world as ambassadors of their distorted, glitchy, buzzed-out bass-thump sound, it's a treat for them to reappear in the city where they started. After becoming a favorite throughout Europe, Lazer Sword is about to release its long-awaited eponymous debut album, a collection that promises chaotic collaborations with vocalists like Antipop Consortium's M. Sayyid and Myka Nyne. Lazer Sword unsheaths its beat machines alongside L.A.-based Orientalist dance-pop duo Rainbow Arabia and East Bay tribalist noiseniks Religious Girls tonight at the Rickshaw Stop.

  • 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.'"
