The sixth season of Friday Nights at the de Young Museum kicked off in style with live music from Le Chat Lunatique who play a self-described brand of "filthy, mangy jazz," absinthe, and famous artists Vincent van Gogh, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Berthe Morisot, and Paul Gauguin -- who were brought to life by actors who occupied the museum floor and painted while party goers mingled.

  • 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.'"
