Trey Songz: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Sep 8 2010

Trey Songz has etched out a career as the go-to-guy for rappers wanting to add a soulful chorus to their latest songs. Despite three successful solo albums, including 2009's gold-certified Ready, the Virginia-born singer is most readily identified by the rap royalty he has worked with. This year, his fervent vocals have been featured on songs by Rick Ross, Ludacris, Diddy and Fat Joe; before that, he collaborated with platinum-sellers Drake, Lil Wayne, and Young Jeezy. His fourth album, Passion, Pain, and Pleasure, continues the trend, with Young Money's Nicki Minaj guesting on first single "Bottoms Up."

  • 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.'"
