MC Hopie: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Nov 21 2012

There are lots of ambitious, up-and-coming rappers in the San Francisco Bay Area. Few of them were born in the Phillippines, can play a host of musical instruments, and wield a law degree from U.C Hastings. So local MC Hopie would stand out even if she weren't laying thoughtful, nimble rhymes over beats by some of the best local producers. Hopie's tracks vary in quality, but the best ones have an inventive flow and a willingness to confront issues like the lack of female MCs in the game. This week sees Hopie's last local show before her new album arrives in March.

    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.'"
