Marina and the Diamonds have a plan for megastardom.
  • Marina and the Diamonds have a plan for megastardom.
First, an exhortation: pick up the print edition of SF Weekly in the next few days for a full-color page of cool, sexy, ridiculous concert photos from this past summer. You can obviously check 'em out online, but trust us: there's just something cool about seeing pictures of Lady Gaga, Pavement, Paul McCartney, Die Antwoord, Janelle Monae, and others in print.

Next up: Marina Diamandis, the strikingly beautiful head of U.K. pop outfit Marina and the Diamonds, who tells us that she's got a secret plan to become a megastar. "I'm obsessed with how pop culture has declined over the past 10 years, as people think it should be dumbed down," she says. "I feel like I have a responsibility to show that not everything is an Auto-Tuned pile of songs."

Also: Bouncer is grateful for the fried cheese at Sycamore, and we recommend shows from Wild Nothing, Dom, Jimmy Edgar, and Pantha Du Prince.

  • 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.'"
