How the Grouch Stole Christmas 

Wednesday, Dec 9 2009

What good is a holiday present without colorful wrapping? No, I mean the other kind of rapping, with mikes, MCs, and turntables. At Thursday's How the Grouch Stole Christmas date, the audience gets the gift of gab with sets by prolific Living Legends member the Grouch, hyphy king Mistah F.A.B., and hotly tipped newcomer Fashawn with L.A. beatmaker Exile. Every act on this bill could headline: Grouch is a compelling hip-hop narrator, F.A.B.'s infectious energy defines "party rap," and Fashawn's fluid, reality-infused rhymes recall Nas in his prime. Even better, this show is a Toys for Tots drive; bring a new, wrapped toy and receive a musical present from the Grouch. Maybe it'll be a copy of his newly released, DJ Fresh–produced album, Three Eyes off the Time.

  • 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.'"
