Do You Feel Jumpy? 

Wednesday, Oct 15 2008
An entire generation is growing to tweenhood tossed around like popcorn kernels in those inflatable jumpy houses, weekend in and weekend out. We know, because we watch jealously from our picnic blankets in parks throughout the city, weekend in and weekend out. When we were kids, all we had were trampolines, man. At the massive Family Festival, jumpy houses — that's right, multiple jumpy houses — are only the beginning. Roving circus people, hands-on activities organized by the Exploratorium and the Museum of Modern Art, and the deathless, ancient ritual of communal pumpkin-carving join kid-friendly performances and carousel rides at this enormous excuse to run around screaming.

    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.'"
