Out-of-towners coming to the Castro will always need a garish watering hole in which to dance and get trashed. Badlands is that place. The beats are strictly uncomplicated club hits and Top 40, and the diva-heavy videos are always amusing if not predictable. Locals, however, tend to steer clear of the venue because of recent accusations of racial discrimination by some of its former clientele.

Upcoming Events

  • Badlands Video Dance Club (21+)

    • Ongoing, 8 p.m.

  • 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.'"
