Free parties in the park are a hallowed hip-hop tradition. Anyone with a keen sense of history knows that that's how the culture began, with block parties in the South Bronx. Here in the West Coast, some of y'all might remember the legendary Informal Nation throwdowns at Raza park in the '90s.

This Sunday, celebrate Labor Day weekend with a free party in Golden Gate Park's Elk Glen Cove featuring some of SF's best DJs. Titled "Doin It In the Park," the jam offers up seven or eight hours of music from Apollo, Shortkut, Mr. E, Mind Motion, Sake One, TD Camp, Ruby Red 1, Haylow, Daddy Rolo, Proof, Shred One, Green B, and Hakobo. Plus, free BBQ, a bouncy jumper for the little ones, arcade games, and red cups. All this courtesy of Triple Threat, Mr. E, and ((Local 1200)).

And, for those who like to groove in the P.M. hours, there's the official after-party, "Doin' It In the Dark" at 111 Minna, with Apollo, Shortkut, Sake One, Mr. E, Fran Boogie, and Norm Ferrer. No dress code, and no school/work the next day. Sounds like a sureshot.

  • 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.'"
