Black Rock City 

Wednesday, Oct 28 2009
Afro-Punk is on. It's an explosion of young, talented, alternative African-Americans. "[People have] gathered around this idea that you can be Black and different," says Trace magazine's Claude Grunitzky in an MTV video clip about the organization, named after James Spooner's independent documentary of the same name. Credited with encouraging the success of Santigold, TV on the Radio, and the Noisettes, the movement/group/hothothot is, simply, on. So say it with us: "I want some." Tonight, Afro-Punk presents Saul Williams and American Fangs.

  • 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.'"
