Now that we're done stuffing our faces with garlic fries and hot dogs for the World Series, it's time to start stuffing our faces for world peace -- or at least, world improvement. On November 19th and 20th, Club Dine In will present a two-day benefit concert to help heal the horrible destruction caused by natural disasters and generally poor living conditions in Pakistan. The show features diverse musical talent, and -- did you see this coming? -- delicious pancake creations courtesy of various celebrity chefs.


Head to Coda to hear music of the world's people interpreted with modern touches. Silas Matungi and the Afro-Funk Experience will headline both performances with traditional Afro-funk in the key of infinite cool. They'll get support from artists who fuse technology with their homeland's unique styles, such as DJ Amar's swirling sitar productions and DJ Santero's futuristic Latin beats. Be there at 7 p.m. Friday, and at 11 a.m. Saturday, to catch the festivities, support the cause, and eat pancakes.

  • 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.'"
