Three 6 Mafia: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Apr 25 2012

When Three 6 Mafia's Juicy J and DJ Paul took home an Oscar in 2006 for "It's Hard out Here for a Pimp," from the film soundtrack Hustle & Flow, they became the first, last, and only Academy Award-winners to specialize in catchy songs about flesh-peddlers, nightclub thuggery, and hallucinatory pursuits to the bottom of a cough medicine bottle.

    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.'"
