This year marks the 10-year anniversary of the Jazz Mafia’s most ambitious work to date, the SFJAZZ-commissioned Brass, Bows & Beats: A Hip-Hop Symphony. Premiered to the sold-out Palace of Fine Arts Theatre at the San Francisco Jazz Festival, BB&B became a sensation on the North American jazz festival circuit with the entire 50-piece Jazz Mafia Symphony playing Newport, Montreal, Monterey, San Jose, and Stern Grove. For the first time in eight years, the full Jazz Mafia Symphony reunites on one stage, performing reimagined selections of Brass, Bows & Beats, as well as the world premieres of several new works.

  • 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.'"
