  • Make It Rain: Jimmie Reign

What's up with the Bay Area's indie R&B scene? First Ledisi. Then Goapele, followed by Netta Brielle. And last, but (certainly) not least, Ms. Jimmie Reign.

Reign has the goods to go far in the industry--she projects a sex-on-a-stick image and apparently has a distate for wearing too many clothes. How can she lose with the stuff she use? -it's a winning hand, as Lionel Richie might say. But if you can get past her physical appearance (ahem), she's also got the talent--and the music--to back it up.

Reign, who was recently featured in the October issue of NYC's "Urban Ink" magazine, has been not-so-quietly amassing a wealth of hot material. Her recent hits "Best I Ever Had" and "Can't Go" clocked a lot of commercial radio spins, and she has two current tunes which appear primed to do the same: "Different Person" and "Make You Wait." Reign has also been playing a lot of shows: her next scheduled appearance is Oct. 2nd at Oakland's Arsimona, and Oct. 17, she hosts the Black Tie Affair at SF's W Hotel. More info--show dates, videos, songs--can be found here and a video of "Different Person"(shot at Oakland's Air Lounge) 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.'"
