Horror nerds rejoice, for the Shock it To Me! Classic Horror Film Festival is upon us. Word from the Squid List says that there are some diabolically awesome guests to present this year's films. Sid Haig, otherwise known as the creepy clown-faced Captain Spaulding in Rob Zombie films, makes an appearance to present one of his older flicks, Spider Baby, and original cast members from the classic Dark Shadows are scheduled to discuss the series as well as the upcoming Tim Burton remake. The fest runs Oct. 17 and 18 at the Castro Theatre. Visit the Shock it To Me! site for full 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.'"
