Local DJs Disco Shawn (left) and DJ Oro11 have spent the past year bringing a bit of Buenos Aires to San Francisco. They're the masterminds behind the regular Tormenta Tropical club night, which mixes beats and cultures, throwing cumbia music into hiphop, electro, and techno tracks. They're celebrating their first anniversary at the Elbo Room tonight, where they'll share a bill with "Caribbean ravers" Heatwave and Mad Decent's Paul Devro. Forget the winter storm blanketing the Bay: It's a lot more fun to sweat it out Tropical style. --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.'"
