Irvine Welsh has brought us tales of drug abuse and soccer hooligans from Scotland for years now, with releases like The Acid House, Glue, and Porno. And of course, you can't mention Welsh without bringing up Trainspotting. His latest work, Crime, features all that trademark ribaldry set on the streets of Miami, meaning considerably less soccer hooligans and lots more cocaine. You can catch Welsh read from the new novel at Edinburgh Castle Pub on Sept. 20. Peep Laughing Squid for all the info. --Oscar Pascual

  • 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.'"
