Warm(er) nights and light evenings mean a number of things in San Francisco, and one of them is that it will soon be time to spend your Sunday afternoons relaxing on a lawn in Stern Grove, enjoying good live music for the cost of nothing. Yes, folks, the Stern Grove Festival begins June 16, and organizers just released the lineup for this year. It includes soulful guitar genius Shuggie Otis, celebrated NorCal hip-hop outfit Deltron 3030, Kronos Quartet, the SF Symphony, Michael McDonald and Boz Scaggs (!), and more.

  • 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.'"
