LoCura's Spanish moniker can be interpreted as both "the cure" and "insanity." The band's message? Mad revelry is the one true panacea in a wild 'n' wacky world. Celebrating its ethos through multicultural song and dance, the five-piece Bay Area ensemble crafts an organic fusion of south-of-the-border pop melodies, hot flamenco and rhumba rhythms, Cali-baked Rasta grooves, and a spectacular performance style. Last year's debut, Animas, brims with positive vibrations.

  • 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.'"
