Jimmy Edgar wants to be your STD 

Wednesday, May 2 2007
Jimmy Edgar 's music is a fly combination of the genre styles he was raised hearing — from '80s soul to the techno his fellow Detroiters invented. But it's his raw humor that adds an edge to the blend: "I Wanna Be Your STD," for example, brilliantly skewers R&B's oversexed nature with absurdly nasty talk over stuttering beats. Edgar appears on a bill with one of his chief influences, SoCal electro pioneer Egyptian Lover, at "Club Loaded" on Friday, May 4, at Rickshaw Stop at 10 p.m. Admission is $10; call 861-2011 or visit for more info. — Tamara Palmer

Jefrodesiac (Blow Up), Vin Sol (Superfriends), and Richie Panic (Frisco Disco) are three San Francisco DJs with appreciable followings. Together these tastemakers wield the power of their extensive record collections at a new monthly called " Heat Stroke ." Whether spinning new wave, no wave, or the next wave in hip hop, revelers can expect a harmonic convergence of synthesizer grooves and a satisfying dose of hipster-watching here. The first "Heat Stroke" takes place on Friday, May 4 (and continues on the first Fridays of the month thereafter), at Milk at 10 p.m. Admission is $10; call 387-6455 or visit for more info. — T.P.

  • 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.'"
