The Mission District's favorite go-to spot for Afrobeat, Nuyorican Soul, and Baile funk celebrates its second birthday with a two-night blowout this Thursday and Friday. As the PR states, "The vision for the party was to incorporate live drums and guests musicians and to bring the crowd in as a central ingredient to the performance. Bridging the gap between Fela and Afro-house, Tito Puente and Masters at Work Afrolicious runs the spectrum of soulful global music." Joining resident DJs Senor Oz and Pleasuremaker, and drummers B.Lee and J.Elrod at the Elbo Room for the birthday bash are special guests from NYC: Nickodemus (Turntables on the Hudson), Nappy G and DJ Smash (Giant Step/Fat Jazzy Grooves).So, you know this is gonna be a serious throwdown.

Planning on being part of that irresistably rhythmic Afrolicious flavor? To get your juju-bees nice and sticky, peep Mp3s and videos here.

  • 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.'"
