Oysterfest: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jun 27 2012

If pairing food and music is the next big thing in San Francisco, one could do worse than Oysterfest, an annual party coming to Golden Gate Park that matches the radio-friendly indie rock of headliner Young the Giant with oceanic delights from some of the Bay Area's best oyster farms. Musical highlights will include YtG's catchy-if-bland distillation of '90s-alternative, the more adventurous prog-pop of Minus the Bear, and a sure-to-be-excellent DJ set from Live 105 Music Director Aaron Axelsen. (Manchester Orchestra and Little Hurricane also play.) Along with lots and lots of oysters, there will be barbecue from Big Jim's, fish tacos from Gustavo's, and cheesesteaks from Boardroom on hand.

  • 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.'"
