The Pharcyde 

Wednesday, Jan 20 2010

No longer your grandfather's jazz club, Yoshi's in San Francisco has spent the last year opening its stage to leading rap artists, with more big-name acts on the way. First up is the Pharcyde, a Los Angeles–bred group popular in the '90s that broke up in 2004. It reformed for the 2008 Rock the Bells tour, where crowds of up to 10,000 sang every word of its sampleadelic, easy-swinging hits "Runnin'" and "Passin' Me By," hip-hop classics recognizable from their first notes.

  • 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.'"
