Queer and Now 

Wednesday, Sep 5 2012
At last year’s BYOQ (Bring Your Own Queer), a cute stranger taught us how to booty bounce against the stage of Golden Gate Park’s historical Bandshell Pavilion. We are now convinced the bandshell is meant solely for glitter-loads of hot queers and their allies. BYOQ is an all-day festival that celebrates queer organizations, bike doctors, electronic musicians, DJs, and performance artists in a space where queers aren’t likely to congregate. In the past, BYOQ was (amazingly) organized by one person, but now it has back up from the likes of Hard French, Honey Soundsystem, Darling Nikki, Dial Up, Faetopia, and more, so expect today’s event to be bigger and queerer than ever. Adding to the festivities are the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Celeste Chan, Ali Liebegott, Jiggalicious Dance Babes, and Queers for Gears. If the music is as fearless as last year’s, prepare to cut a rug at this party with neighborhood flavor. DJs and musicians Edaj, Adonisaurus, Carrie Morrison, and Darling Gunsel tend to your ears and work your bodies.

  • 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.'"
