Tap dance is a transcendent, joyful, and exciting art form as diverse in makeup as it is in audience and as fast-paced in innovation as it is in choreography. Local nonprofit Stepology hoofs toward another milestone with an annual week-long festival dedicated to tap's preservation, promotion, and performance. The Bay Area Tap Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary with a series of cutting-edge workshops, panel discussions, and performances. This year’s event sees the return of former favorites Channing Cook Holmes (Riverdance), Jason Rodgers (Bring in 'da Noise, Bring in 'da Funk), and the Barbary Coast Cloggers. The festival culminates with the Bay Area Rhythm Exchange, an annual dance concert featuring today’s top tap talents and live musical accompaniment -- featured artists include Sam Weber, Lamont Keller, Maya Kronfeld, and more. This raw collection of styles is sure to be a real kick.

    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.'"
