Groove Merchant: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Dec 28 2011

Even in this vinyl-happy town, Groove Merchant Records in the Lower Haight stands alone as a dealer of rare, vintage, and under-appreciated sounds on wax. The tiny shop has an international reputation for digging up awesome rhythms, so it's only natural that it also has a regular party every fifth Friday at Madrone. The night's headlining DJ is none other than Groove Merchant owner "Cool" Chris Veltri, and other spinners include Jerry Nice, Vinnie Esparza, and Jon Blunck. It might be your best bet to hear the music that's moving the crew at one of the city's most interesting record stores.

  • 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.'"
