Posted By on Mon, May 5, 2008 at 11:22 AM


Warren Hellman, the generous bankroller behind Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, is financing a pretty incredible lineup once again. It was announced today that none other than Robert Plant will be headlining the free October festival. Sadly, Plant's apperance won't be for a Led Zeppelin day in the park, but fans of his disc with Alison Krauss (and featuring T Bone Burnett) will be happy to know they're all playing together at HSB this year. Other big names just announced:Louden Wainwright III, Gogol Bordello, Hazel Dickens, Bonnie Prince Billy, and more. The event goes down Oct. 3-5. Hit up Hardly Strictly website for all the details so far. It's going to be a crazy festival summer in San Francisco once again. -- 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.'"
