Any Giants fan who wants to meet YouTube's million-hit-man Ashkon in person can do so today at 4:15, when the singer of the Giants-themed "Don't Stop Believing" belts it out outside the ballpark.

"It'll be me, a guitar, an amp, and what's left of my flu-ridden voice," Ashkon Davaran tells SF Weekly. "I'll be performing the song everyone wants to hear."

The Bay Area-born singer and actor, who has snagged a share of net fame via the above ditty, managed to also snag tickets for Game 1 -- and hopes to do so tonight as well. Should the Giants return to AT&T Park after the weekend -- and fans are hoping the team wins out in Arlington and that's not necessary -- Ashkon speculates he may be tapped by the team to "do something" during Games 6 or 7.

In the meantime ... don't stop believing!

  • 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.'"
