Arty Party This Weekend: Mexican Institute of Sound @ YBC

Yerba Buena snagged a great musical act for this Friday's opening of its new Wallworks exhibit: Mexican Institute of Sound. The band is the brainchild of DJ /producer/president of EMI Mexico Camilo Lara, who uses the moniker as an excuse to mix together traditional Latin music with modern electronica. On his records you hear bits of everything from cumbia to cha cha cha, spiked by left field sound effects. Lara says Latin music comes out of him naturually--or, as he told SF Weekly back in April, "If you eat tacos, you poo tacos."

So there you have it. Hear Lara poo tacos all over the museum Friday when MIS headlines the opening Wallworks party alongside Chris Brown of Rogue Wave and DJ Lengua. Members slide in free, otherwise it's $12-$15 to get in. Party starts at 8 p.m.

  • 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.'"
