Popscene, the club night that started as a celebration of Britpop and became the country's longest-running indie weekly, turns 17 years old this Thursday. Chief organizer and Live 105 music director Aaron Axelsen had been keeping the name of this week's headliner under wraps -- until this weekend, that is. Fresh off of his set at Monterey's First City Festival, and with a new album, Paracosm, out this month on Sub Pop, it's now been revealed that Washed Out will play this week's Popscene.

In case you haven't been following Ernest Greene's music as Washed Out, here's a little taste of what he's been up to:

Washed Out plays the Rickshaw Stop, a smaller venue than you'd normally catch the act in, on Thursday with Popscene DJs. Tickets are still available.

  • 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.'"
