The local chapter of the Recording Academy -- y'know the folks who give out Grammy awards -- did something pretty cool on Wednesday: They gathered a bunch of local artists and industry professionals and brought them over to SF State for Grammy Career Day, a daylong reality check and guide to music industry for about 700 Bay Area high school students. There were panels on such diverse topics as DIY culture, jazz improvisation, and the realities of the music business. Also, performances from rising musicians who are also students. Check out these photos for a taste.

  • 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.'"
