Something Like a Phenomenon 

Wednesday, Jul 15 2009
Hope you've been practicing — The New York Night Train Soul Clap and Dance-Off is the chance you've been waiting for your entire young life. A dance competition needs great judges and great DJs, and it's never going to be better than this party, in either of those departments. Mr. Jonathan Toubin, New York City's soul-45 mastermind and superDJ, offers as judges the music editors of both alt-weeklies (our own Jennifer Maerz and the Bay Guardian's Kimberly Chun), Jello Biafra, Cinnamon from the Lusty Lady, artist Jay Howell, musician and DJ Paul Costuros, Dave Katznelson of Birdman Records, and DJ Primo Pitino of the Make-Out Room's amazing Tuesday nights, among others. These are people who've seen dancing, so keep practicing.

  • 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.'"
