Tuesday's Pick: 'Alcoholocaust: Stump the Wizard'

The Wizard hates to lose.
  • The Wizard hates to lose.
On any given Tuesday, Alcoholocaust provides a boozy chance to recharge old memory centers while simultaneously (and paradoxically) killing a few brain cells: cheap Tecate in fist, you can challenge yourself to recall which vintage metal or classic punk track you're hearing above the social din. Get it right and give yourself a satisified pat on the back, Mr. I. M. DeShit! With Stump the Wizard, however, the event's resident DJs have upped the ante. At this name-that-tune variant for underground rock obsessives, the first record-collector geek to guess the song currently spinning wins a free beer. Spot three songs in a row and the DJ promises to "pack up his things, sit at the bar sulking, and buy that person shots until the bar closes." That means you get both cerveza and a sense of smug superiority. It's like every heavy metal nerd's dream come true -- minus the half-naked Viking babe riding a white sabertooth tiger to a sex orgy in Norway, of course.

  • 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.'"
