One of the best mid-size venues in the region, the Independent boasts great sound and sightlines, not to mention a diverse calendar that pulls top acts from genres including indie rock, alt-country, electronica, post-punk, funk, hip-hop, reggae, and other music from around the globe. Headlining acts often make the jump to larger, less-intimate theaters, making the Independent a great place to say you saw them when they were still playing the club circuit.

  • 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.'"
