Gaga is coming! Gaga is coming!

Okay, so it's not until early 2013. But today, the freak-queen of gloss-pop, meatsuits, and gender-bending award show appearances announced a new North American leg of her Born This Way Ball World Tour, and it includes a stop -- for just one night -- here in the Bay Area.

Gaga will perform Jan. 17 at HP Pavilion in San Jose -- the night before pop star Pink is scheduled to play the same venue. Madeon and Lady Starlight are opening Gaga's show, and tickets go onsale this Friday at 10 a.m. (There's also a presale for members of Gaga's social networking site, Prices range from $63 to $197.28, including fees, and can be bought at Ticketmaster.

No word yet on how the Bay Area stops of her tours have been swaying Gaga's rumored plans to move to Northern California. But if our past experiences are any indication, they're a pretty good time.

  • 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.'"
