EDM shows, like Avicii's sold-out party last night at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium last night, invert the normal concert-visual rule: Often the most interesting thing to look at is the audience. Certainly that was true last night, when a motley crew of 8,000 -- including both candygirl ravers and respectable-looking adults -- submitted to the pulse and throb of Avicii's relentless neon house. Naturally, there was some really silly stuff going on among the sweaty throngs. Here then are the 10 funniest crowd shots grabbed by photographer Christopher Victorio.

  • 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.'"
