Jimi Hendrix died 40 years ago this past Saturday, September 18. To mark the icon's passing, the music-focused San Francisco Art Exchange is holding an exhibition of photos of the legendary guitarist titled, appropriately, "Can You See Me -- A Life Through the Lens." This Saturday, September 25, at the opening reception, Hendrix producer/engineer Eddie Kramer -- who worked on all of Jimi's studio albums, and helped set up Electric Lady Studios in New York -- will be at the gallery playing a new box set of unreleased Hendrix tunes. The set includes four CDs of music from Hendrix's days as a sideman, fresh demos, and alternate takes of classic Hendrix songs. Also in the box is a 90-minute DVD documentary about the 27 years Hendrix spent on Planet Earth. The new Hendrix box set, entitled West Coast Seattle Boy: The Jimi Hendrix Anthology, doesn't come out until November 16, so if you want to hear it early -- and shake the hands that mixed Are You Experienced? -- Saturday's your chance.

  • 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.'"
