DJ Sep's Dub Mission might just be the longest-running club night in San Francisco. It's easy to take the Sunday night party for granted, but it's done a lot to ensure that bass, reverb, and echo have a place in the city's nightlife, as well as continually featuring national and international artists of renown within the dub world.

Case in point: May 24's show with Brooklyn's Dr. Israel. Probably best known for the dubby jungle anthem "Inna City," he's also worked with Rancid, Praxis, Santogold, and Bill Laswell. Also on the bill: Patch--a founding member of Heavyweight Dub Champion;Lady K, a protégé of Dr. Israel who hails from Washington D.C.; and, of course, Dub Mission's dubmistress, DJ Sep. This show is gonna be filled with dread vibrations in various iterations, so check it.

  • 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.'"
