Tricky Cancels Treasure Island Appearance; Danny Brown To Replace Him

Tricky has postponed a number of U.S. tour dates due to visa issues, including his set at Treasure Island Music Festival this weekend. So it's sigh, sigh, for the Massive Attack/English rap maven, but this post is not all bad news. Replacing him on the TI bill is none other than Detroit madman and notorious performer Danny Brown, who is riding high on -- well, on marijuana, because he's Danny Brown and he smokes marijuana a lot -- but also on the nice things certain people have said about an album he released last week.

(Getting visas to perform in the U.S., this seems like a good time to point out, is a pain. Sorry, Tricky. He sounds terribly frustrated by the process.)

Danny Brown takes Treasure Island at 2:45 p.m. Sunday on the Bridge Stage. Tickets for the festival are still available in single-day and two-day flavors. Might wanna roll your blunts in advance, though -- it gets windy out there.

  • 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.'"
