Lynette Knackstedt, founding member of ska punks Skankin' Pickle, died last December 7 of a drug overdose. But her friends and fans are holding a memorial concert to remember Lynette at a show at 924 Gilman Street, where proceeds from the event will benefit a local drug recovery organization. On April 19, Skankin' Pickle's Mike Park will perform his group's tunes with friends under the The Bruce Lee Band moniker. Other acts in the bill include The Barfeeders, and the "burlesque-influenced" Lucifer's Strip Club Band. -- 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.'"
