Questlove at PST Tuesday Night

Tuesday nights haven't traditionally been the most happening club nights around--that honor is usually reserved for the weekend (or Thursday, for locals wary of bridge-and-tunnelers). But Great Gosh A-mighty if DJ Sake One's "Pacific Standard Time" at 330 Ritch hasn't completely changed the conventional wisdom around midweek blahs. For the urban crowd who are a bit more sophisticated (and a bit older) than trendy hip-hop fans, Tuesday evenings have become a go-out night, thanks to PST's constantly interesting (and often legendary) special guests.

Some folks are still giggling about the way NYC's Kool DJ Red Alert brought them back to junior high dances during PST's 4th anniversary party a few weeks back. The latest luminary to grace the 330 Ritch decks is none other than Questlove, the Roots' drummer. He'll be bringing not only his trademark nappy Afro, but also his mouth-watering music collection (which has already inspired two commercially-released Mix CDs on BBE). It's kinda getting to the point where I say this every week about "PST," but this is one night when you won't wish you stayed at home. Presales are almost all gone, but at press time, there were a few left--which can be yours by clicking this link.

  • 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.'"
