It's actually kinda cool that museums--normally a refuge for bratty kids on school trips, visiting tourists, and stodgy nerds--are making an attempt to be hip. If you haven't yet attended the Cal Academy of Science's 'Nightlife' event--in which the building "is transformed into a lively venue filled with music, provocative science, mingling, and cocktails, for visitors 21 and older"--this week (Thursday, Aug 20) might be a good bet. NoisePop curates, and they've lined up DJs Swayzee and Mr. Wrong, plus acoustic act Ryan Auffenberg. In addition, Science in Action Café will host "The Physics Circus," hosted by Zeke Kossover, which should provide an opportunity for would-be quantum mechanics to test their skills, relativistically-speaking. NoisePop is also giving away a pair of free tickets; (email here with the subject "NightLife" and your full name and phone number in the body of the email on or before 1pm on Tuesday, August 18, 2009 for your chance to win! Winners will be notified by email.)

  • 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.'"
