(The team behind KoKo's looking to open the Hi Lo Lounge in late 2011 at 1423 Polk at Pine, after KoKo's July 30 close.) Tucked between busy Van Ness Boulevard and the Polk Gulch/Tenderloin boundary zone, KoKo is tiny in size but rising fast in scene appreciation. New owners (as of early 2008) removed the old pool table to make room for dancing while DJs play everything from vintage soul, hip-hop, and reggae to Brazilian beats, art-rock, and mutant disco. It doesn't take much to make this dark, intimate space feel crowded - providing a casual intimacy that you won't find in fancier, trendier rooms.

  • 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.'"
