Rock Make Street Festival: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Sep 12 2012

The arrival of September means the start of summer proper in San Francisco, when the gloom of June and July gives way to unambiguously warm days and topaz skies. So there's no better time for the Rock Make festival, a gathering of local craft vendors and some of the region's best independent musicians, put on by local music site the Bay Bridged. This year's musical highlights include the out-there poptronica of Yalls (aka Berkeley sample/synth wizard Dan Casey), the literate folk-rock of John Vanderslice, and the jazzy world-pop of promising new group DRMS. These artists and many more perform at a stage on a Mission street, alongside food trucks and local craftspeople, for a decidedly summery party this weekend. And since it's September, there might even be blue skies.

  • 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.'"
