Yung Lean @ The Fillmore 

Wednesday, Mar 30 2016

Consider yourself lucky if you catch this Yung Lean show because the same can't be said for Lean's fans in Minnesota. The Swedish rapper's March 27 show in Minneapolis was cancelled because — get this — someone posted a poorly-worded bomb threat on Reddit. Police searched the venue and nearby blocks for explosives, but none were to be found. Still, the show did not go on. "I wanted to play the show but due to circumstances it won't work," tweeted the 19-year-old sad rap impresario. As to why someone would target the Emperor of Emo, that's still unclear. You'd think the depressed and disaffected would stick together, wouldn't you? Then again, trollers gonna troll.

  • 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.'"
