Drive Like Jehu @ The Independent

Reel Big Fish @ The Fillmore

Morrissey at The Masonic

Good thing the Masonic doesn't have a kitchen, because we all know how much our favorite vegan loves to hate on venues that serve meat. (In fact, Morrissey is so serious about not performing where burgers and dogs are sold…

  • 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.'"
