The California Honeydrops at Stern Grove

The 2015 Stern Grove outdoor concert series promises to deliver yet another fine season replete with world acts, ballet, funk, folk, and much more. This Sunday's show with The Doobie Brothers and The California Honeydrops is the first of the long-awaited shows on the menu. And while pairing a heritage rock band with a blues, roots, and R&B band from Oakland may seem odd at first, the joining of the two acts couldn't be any more apropos. The latter band, which has become a headliner all over the United States, is a phenomenal vocal-powered group which at times sounds like New Orleans jazz fare and traditional soul. With an ever-growing fan base, expect many to be converted once the band takes the stage to kick off the concert. Lead singer and trumpet player Lech Wierzynski is a force to be reckoned with alongside his equally talented bandmates. Get there an hour early if you don't like standing.

  • 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.'"
