Sea of Dreams: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Dec 28 2011

For 11 years, the annual Sea of Dreams party has assembled a program of live music, DJs, dancers, and art, plus some of the choicest people-watching this side of Burning Man. But this year's lineup of performers and DJs is more expansive, and should draw even revelers who don't play in the dust. Some likely highlights include Amon Tobin's ISAM, a mind-blowing optical illusion of large three-dimensional projections set to darkly restless techno; Portland's MarchFourth Marching Band and Oakland's Beats Antique, which should provide balancing levity as well as eye candy; and Philadelphia singer/producer Santigold, who rides the intersection of indie, funk, and electro with fascinating ease.

    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.'"
