This weekend, tens of thousands of revelers will hit San Francisco in force, many clad in nothing but skimpy, shiny, feathered costumes. That's right, it's Carnaval time. As usual with this annual event, there's much more going on than just a parade. There's plenty of live music, DJs, and dance troupes, to keep your feet moving. One stage which bears checking out both Saturday and Sunday is Island Vibes, which has a mice mix of live music and DJs playing dancehall, reggaeton, Latin, and hip-hop. The Saturday lineup includes DJ Mr. E, Alma the Dreamer, Bodirock Dancers, Oakland Soul Dance Crew, Company of Prophets, Isis G & Do D.A.T., DJ Fuze, Jah Warrior Shelter, Duniya Dance & Drum Company, DJ Smoke-One and DJ Mpenzi. Sunday's Island Vibes party should be just as hot, with DJ Serg, Ini Vibration, Secure Dem, DJ Sake One, Polo Mo'Qz, Green B & Daneekah, and more. More info is here and 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.'"
