Call her the black Madonna if you must, but there's no escaping the fact that Beyonce--Thierry Mugler breastplate and all--Knowles has become a gay icon. That implies a certain amount of camp, and while Ms. Bootylicious is less ironic an artist than, say, Kylie Minogue and Britney Spears, it's probably safe to say that the only heterosexual males attending tonight's show at Oracle Arena will be poor unfortunate souls dragged there by their girlfriends.

Still, Beyonce's "I Am..." tour should be quite the spectacle, with plenty of eye candy, costume changes, and dazzling choreography. If you've got $240 to spend for a main floor ticket, by all means, get fierce with it (on a budget? Nosebleed seats in the upper deck are a reasonable $20). Ticket info is 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.'"
