Weekend Pick #1: Fela B-Day Celebration

It's hard to think of a more iconic artist than Fela Anikulapo Kuti. The founder of Afrobeat, who famously proclaimed "music is a weapon," was both a voice of progressive social change--and often uncomfortably-honest socioeconomic critique--and a musical visionary.…

PUTS @ Slims: Nothing But a Party, Y'all

You'll have to forgive my hangover this morning (afternoon?) - a direct result of hanging out with People Under the Stairs and Om Records' Gunnar Hissam last night. Hazardous duty, for sure. Anyway, PUTS previewed their new album Carried…

Beat Machine Tour Hits SF Tonight

One of the best things about living in the SF Bay Area--as opposed to say, Bumfu*k, Idaho--is that it's recognized as a cultural center and tastemaking place. Case in point: the Beat Machine tour, a Scion/Turntable Lab-sponsored jaunt through…

  • 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.'"
