DJ Quik and Kurupt have announced a San Francisco date--June 11 at Ruby Skye--for their official record release for their new collaboration, Blaqkout. The record is said to be Quik's most creative, cutting-edge release to date, and the two will be joined live onstage by a full band, performing album cuts like "9 Times out of Ten" and "Hey Playa (Moroccan Blues)" as well as classics from both artists' catalogues. Just as exciting is the all-local undercard of Trackademicks with Honor Roll, the Kev Choice Ensemble, and DJ Mr. E. This show offers further proof of hip-hop's growing musicality through the use of live musicians in stage shows, which makes for a more interesting---and funkier concert experience--than hearing some rapper yammer over prerecorded backing tracks. $20 presales are 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.'"
