It's a pleasant Wednesday afternoon at the San Francisco Zoo, and the larger and more rotund of the two sea lions is out by the side of his enclosure's little pool, wriggling in the sun, looking like someone who went to bed with a belly full of Mexican food.

    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.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
