The I-Beam was a special place on Haight Street that featured a veritable who’s who of local, regional, and national talent for many years. What opened as a gay dance club in the Haight-Ashbury District became one of the greatest venues for some of the biggest names including (but certainly not limited to) Faith No More, Primus, Soundgarden, Butthole Surfers, Curve, Social Distortion, Victims Family, The Jesus Lizard, and countless others. Eddy Jennings was one of two very important talent buyers (which also included Anita Rivas) who enriched many San Franciscans’ lives as well as the countless folks who journeyed to the historic club. This is a benefit show to help Jennings with his battle against cancer, and it seems nearly every important local act from his booking heyday has joined the party. Whether you’re a fan of Jennings for his contributions or simply the bands, show up en masse for one special night of great music.

  • 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.'"
