...but he did have to wear one of those funny little blue face masks for a while. San Francisco troubadour Prophet traveled down to Mexico City in recent months to record a new album that's set to come out this fall. Once south of the border, Prophet found plenty of material to write about, encountering both the swine flu outbreak and a 6.4 earthquake. The guitarist and songwriter sounds to now be in good health and good spirits, however, soldiering on in making a "political album for non-political people" while ingesting not fear and paranoia but rather many delicious little tacos.

  • 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.'"
