Short of a zombified Kurt Cobain rising from the grave in Lolita shades to sing "Heart Shaped Box" to a bunch of kids raised on Miley Cyrus and sexting, we're pretty sure this '90s revival thing has now gotten as crazy-ridiculous as it can get:

Ladies and gentlemen, Soundgarden is going on a reunion tour.

It will be the first Soundgarden tour in 14 years -- the first since Audioslave, since vocalist Chris Cornell's solo project (which came to S.F. this week!), and since you cut off those greasy grunge-kid locks around '98. (Don't ya wish you had 'em now?)

The Soundgarden reunion rolls through San Francisco on July 21, stopping at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Tickets go on sale May 13; check here for them.

If nothing else, we bet it'll be loud. And since the Mars Volta is opening, it'll definitely be hairy.

  • 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.'"
