U.S. Air Guitar 

Wednesday, Jun 24 2009

Michael Jordan may have been called "His Airness," but he's got nothin' on this year's U.S. Air Guitar contestants. Such absolutely shameless competitors as Shreddy Mercury, Fender Splendor, Derek Not So Smalls, and Electric Testicle have slayed other cities with their blazing fretwork, eye-popping costumes, and comical stage presence, proving that air guitar is the new karaoke (albeit much, much easier on the ears). Who is equal to the task? The Bay Area's own Craig "Hot Lixx Hulahan" Billmeier — who air-shredded his way to victory at the Air Guitar World Championships in Finland last year — will be on hand to help judge 2009's colorful crop of contenders for one night of the contest's two-night run.

  • 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.'"
