Catch the Bug 

Wednesday, Aug 20 2008

Steve Bug is a DJ, producer, and head of Poker Flat, the Berlin-based label that's a world leader in capturing that blurry edge between deep house and techno. Poker Flat boasts an international roster of artists, including John Tejada in America, Trentemøller in Denmark, and Håkan Lidbo in Sweden. Bug himself has made singles and DJ mixes for 17 years. His own recent song "Momwack" is a lively track with castanet-like beats and warbling keyboard chords. Bug makes his first local appearance in seven years this week. He'll be joined by Oakland's Limacon, a DJ who also records for Poker Flat, and resident DJ Nikola Baytala at "Further" on Saturday, Aug. 23, at Mighty at 10 p.m. Admission is $15; call 762-0151 or visit

  • 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.'"
