Lost & Found

While most '60s soul parties are dedicated to uptempo bangers, Slow Jams takes a different tack. Thrown Tuesday nights at the Make-Out Room, it's an evening dedicated to the slower side of soul with a playlist that sounds tailor-made for some hip '60s prom. Veteran DJs Lucky and Primo preside over the event with their extensive (and expensive) collections of rare vinyl. Grab a partner and sway to songs like Joe Bataan's "Under the Streetlamp," Malo's "Suavecito," and Wendy Rene's "After Laughter." Lose yourself enough, and the club's nostalgic decorations might give you the impression of being in a lost era. Snap out of it, and you'll soon realize you can have this much fun every week.

  • 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.'"
