  • Boiler Room is hosting its first party in San Francisco.

It's finally happening: Boiler Room is coming to San Francisco on Saturday, Oct. 19. If the name Boiler Room doesn't ring a bell, chances are you haven't been spending much time in the world of underground dance music. It's an Internet television show -- started in London, but with outposts in Berlin, New York, and Los Angeles -- that regularly features exclusive live-streamed sets, recorded in warehouse party locations, from some of the most respected DJs in the world. Recent episodes have featured luminaries like Marcel Dettman, Maceo Plex, and Frankie Knuckles. It's one of the larger music channels on the internet, pushing cutting-edge music, with style, via the media of the moment.

The first-ever Bay Area broadcast comes as an afterparty for the upcoming Treasure Island Music Festival. Boiler Room is teaming up with Ray-Ban to offer a web-streaming show headlined by Madlib, the Los Angeles-based, Stones Throw-affiliated hip-hop beatmaker behind such stoned backpacker classics as Quasimoto's The Unseen and Madvillainy (his collaboration with MF Doom). Like most Boiler Rooms, the location is under wraps, but you can sign up to become informed prior to the party by RSVPing with your email address via this link.

  • 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.'"
