We're in the final few hours of the first ever Outside Lands Music and Art Festival in Golden Gate Park. Here's the report from the ground:

- Ok, so Andrew Bird just tore it up on the Twin Peaks stage with looping violins and spinning phonograph speakers.

- The sun is kind of shining through but it's still pretty hazy, and actually a bit humid and gross.

- I'm sitting in a tent and there are people in here playing Guitar Hero.

- One of the main attractions here is the Crowd Fire tent where people can upload pictures into this big swirling collection of pictures that are displayed on huge projectors.

Anyway, Outside Lands is happening and here's what it looks like:

  • 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.'"
