Braza: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jun 1 2011

No need to drop a G on a ticket to São Paulo; save your dollars and samba over to Braza. The nearly-2-year-old monthly party on first Fridays at Som Bar plays host to expat Brazilians and those who love the nation's grooves. Resident DJs Vanka, Kento, and Elan often explore deeper regional sounds like forró, batucada, and Tropicália alongside traditional bossa nova and house and hip-hop hybrids. This month the Braza crew is joined by primo Los Angeles photographers and filmmakers Brian "B+" Cross and Eric Coleman, producers of the 2002 Brasilintime documentary and dozens more. In addition to their work running the Mochilla studio and label, the two are serious record fiends and plan to share their funkiest South American selections.

    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.'"
