While other industries have been offered stimulus packages to help buffer this difficult economy, musicians have been left in the dust. But leave it to a non-profit to squeeze out some cash for a community typically living from one ramen package to the next.

S.F. indie music site The Bay Bridged announced it will be giving away grants for local acts to use at John Vanderslice's Tiny Telephone studio. Applicants can apply here in hopes of earning three days worth of recording sessions, with the Bay Bridged footing the bill for the recording engineer. It's a pretty cool example of the city's independent music community banding together when times get a little rocky.

  • 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.'"
