The Flaming Lips - J. MICHELLE MARTIN

This year's Treasure Island Music Festival should be another one for the weekender history books, if the early leaked acts booked to perform are any indication. Unofficially on tap to perform Oct. 17 and 18 are MGMT, MSTRKRFT and Girl Talk (Sat) and Flaming Lips (who have a new record coming out), Beirut, and Decemberists (Sunday). These six are pretty top-tier acts in the indie rock/indie-leaning electronic worlds, and, well, Flaming Lips and outdoor music events go together like Justice and glow-sticks (last year's big combo). It's good to see that in its third year, Treasure Island is still picking interesting, popular artists who are as entertaining live as they are in the studio.[Forgot to add: full lineup announced on Monday, July 13].

  • 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.'"
