R&B singer D'Angelo has canceled his scheduled appearance at Outside Lands this weekend "due to a medical emergency," festival representatives announced this morning.

Instead, CHIC -- the funk-disco vehicle of guitarist and recent Daft Punk collaborator Nile Rodgers -- will perform at 6:05 p.m. Friday on the Sutro stage.

"We hope that D'Angelo has a speedy recovery, and we are grateful to Nile Rodgers and CHIC for stepping in at this late hour," says Allen Scott of Another Planet Entertainment. "CHIC is still one of the greatest live bands around and I can guarantee that they are going to bring the party to Outside Lands on Friday."

  • 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.'"
