We've almost reached the end of festival season. After this weekend's Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, there's just one more big outdoor event looming on the horizon: the Treasure Island Music Festival. This year's lineup, which veers from the mainstream/frat-rock tinge of Outside Lands into more underground/indie/electronic/urban territories, looks promising.

And just like with Outside Lands, TIMF promoters have announced several "night shows" which keep the music going well into the evening hours. Appearing at the Independent are Pretty Lights and DJ Rootz on Thursday, October 15; A Place to Bury Strangers, These Are Powers, All the Saints and geographer Saturday, October 17; and Mike Posner with Big Sean Sunday, October 18. Also on Sunday, Mezzanine hosts Dan Deacon, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, BLK JKS, Future Islands, Teeth Mountain, Nuclear Power Pants, and DJ sets by Bob Mould and Aaron Axelsen. Tickets for the festival are available here . And night show tix can be had here and 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.'"
