In the Merry Merry Month

It's the kind of thing promoters say: "Some of the hottest multimedia performers in the Bay Area!" If you're like us, when you see those words, you tune out unless it's a reeeeeally good friend who's laying them down. But tune back in: We are not promoters. We're under no compulsion to do anything other than tell you which events we think are best. And the May Day Festival is definitely one of the biggest and most fun variety-show-type conglomerations around. Fancy drag queens of many genders, flying dance companies, on-fire comedians, live music, and joyful gay clog dancers join the three-day fest; there are 25 performers in all, with a different show each night. Celebrate the "people's holiday" with some of the hottest multimedia performers in the Bay Area.

  • 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.'"
