Welcome to life lessons with Willie Nelson and Family. Tonight's lecture will be divided into seven themes. Please don't be afraid to speak very little to the assembled, swallow your lyrics, throw copious numbers of bandannas into the crowd, or stumble through many guitar solos during the performance. As you well know, these details are wholly irrelevant to the overall enjoyment of both tonight and life in general. Now prepare your alcohol and/or THC-enhanced study aids, and let's begin. Read the rest of Ian S. Port's review in Willie Nelson and Family Deliver Life Lessons in Song at the Fillmore.

  • 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.'"
