(((folkYEAH!))) brings Cluster up the coast

(Cluster's Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius)

(((folkYEAH!))) consistently books cool shows in memorable locations, from Entrance at the Fernwood Lodge in Big Sur to Om at the "haunted" Brookdale Lodge in near Santa Cruz. Britt Govea, the brains behind these gigs, knows city kids from the Bay Area and L.A. eagerly travel to his singular events, which are the perfect mix of scenic vacation and mind-bending folk, rock, and metal acts. For this upcoming Memorial Day weekend, though, the guy has curated a coastal blowout that starts Friday in Big Sur, moves to Brookdale on Saturday, and returns to San Francisco Sunday.

The one constant between the shows is the headliner—Germany’s legendary experimentalists Cluster, who will perform as a duo all three nights, returning to California for the first time in 15 years. With supporting acts ranging from the ambient (Arp) to the drone-friendly (Wooden Shjips) to warped electro-pop (Ariel Pink, Tussle), you can’t loose with any of (((folkYEAH!)))’s lineups that weekend. See full lineups below, or hit up (((folkYEAH!))) for more info. – Jennifer Maerz

  • 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.'"
