  • He's on his way to San Jose ... allegedly.

Bay Area Morrissey fans may remember the Great Moz Clusterfuck of 2012-13, when the beloved British brooder announced a local show, then canceled it, then announced a show, then canceled it, then announced two more shows, and canceled them, too. (All cancellations were allegedly due to health problems that somehow allowed the former Smiths singer to perform in other markets, such as L.A.)

Well, guess what? Morrissey has announced another show!

This one is at the City National Civic Theatre in San Jose on May 7, the opening date of a new touring run that will take Moz all across this spacious country of ours for nearly two months.

We are not sure whether it's a good thing that he's opening his tour here, or a bad thing. But then, having had our hopes dashed so many times, we aren't terribly optimistic that the May date will happen at all.

If you're more hopeful than we are, keep your eyes out for ticket sale info.

  • 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.'"
