Stephen Marley: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jun 15 2011

Jamaica's Ziggy, Julian, and Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley might get all the attention, but behind the scenes, Bob and Rita's second-oldest son, Stephen Marley, has been working on his own legacy. He coproduced most of Damian's '05 breakthrough album, Welcome to Jamrock, and releases two full-length sets this summer. Revelation Part 1: The Root of Life and Revelation Part 2: The Fruit of Life boast prominent guests like Capleton, Rakim, the Roots, and Buju Banton, while lead single "Jah Army" has become a recent reggae club anthem. More so than his siblings, Stephen inherited his father's looks and voice, as well as his songwriting prowess — all of which will be on display when he comes to S.F. with his full band and DJ colleague Spragga Benz.

  • 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.'"
