Attention, attention, dear San Franciscans: This Saturday night offers a chance to support a near-seminal local event while taking in the work of local creatives. At Milk Bar, on Haight Street, four bands of the musical persuasion will perform at a benefit for the beloved Haight Ashbury Street Fair, the 37th edition of which will take place this June 8, 2014.

The Haight-Ashbury Street Fair is a San Francisco tradition, of course, and one that has presented many noteworthy bands over the years, including the Tubes and Jefferson Starship (if you consider them noteworthy). This year's fair will include three live music stages! The benefit on Saturday features the glassy, nostalgic pop of Sea Dreams and the propulsive nighttime rock of Dangermaker, plus Sweetwater Black and Margaret the King. Check 'em out here.

The Milk Bar show starts at 8 p.m. and costs $5 -- which isn't much to support a classic San Francisco event, right?

  • 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.'"
