Bonus Beats From Rock The Bells

Posted By on Mon, Aug 18, 2008 at 5:38 PM

While I didn't get the incredible bird's eye view that our own Oscar Pascual did at Rock The Bells and I was too tired to hit the afterparty with Jackie Lopez, I too was lurking in the shadows of what turned out to be a pretty legendary event for local hip-hop. I borrowed a Nokia N95 video camera phone from the folks at Kyte and ran around like a madwoman filming stuff until the camera died seven hours into the show.

Before the juice ran out and after introducing Method Man to the local horticulture, I managed to do a short interview with Roxy Cottontail, New York party promoter and host of the stellar second stage. I also captured some sneaky snippets of the main stage performances and highlights from the second stage, including Berkeley's The Pack and Atlanta's B.O.B., who brought Fillmore stars San Quinn and Big Rich on stage to perform their local hit "The SF Anthem" -- twice! Check it out and share my excitement. -- Tamara Palmer

  • 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.'"
