Mr. Yeezus himself, Kanye West, rented out AT&T Park on Monday night in order to propose to his girlfriend and the mother of his baby, Kim Kardashian. According to CBS 5, the proceedings took place on Kardashian's 33rd birthday, and included a 50-piece orchestra and a 15-carat diamond ring. AT&T Park's big jumbotron flashed the words "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!" as Kanye took one knee and proposed, demonstrating once again that Kanye is just as emotionally intense in real life as he is in song.

West is in town for two Yeezus live dates in the Bay Area: the first tonight at SAP Center in San Jose, and again Wednesday at Oracle Arena in Oakland. (Tickets for which are still available.) E! reports that the orchestra at AT&T Park last night played versions of Lana Del Rey's "Young & Beautiful," along with Keri Hilson's "Knock You Down," featuring Ne-Yo and Kanye himself.

Here's a question: Do you think his new engagement will soften a little of Kanye's live intensity tonight, as he performs songs from his abrasive new album?

  • 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.'"
