The Warren Hellman museum behind Slim's will close for good at the end of this month. But if you want to take a peek at the museum's exhibits before that, it will hold special holiday hours next week, and will be selling Hardly Strictly Bluegrass merchandise as well.

The museum, which honors the life and contributions of Hardly Strictly Bluegrass founder Warren Hellman, will be open from 11 a.m to 7 p.m. on Dec. 23 and Dec. 27 before closing permanently in January. (Museum organizers tell us the plan was always for the museum to be open during 2013 only, so it's coming to the end of its run.)

Before the closure, though, you've got a chance to get some HSB merchandise for the bluegrass fan in your life. Better make your selections early!

  • 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.'"
