The final set of presenters received loud cheers and

Electronic/DJ winner, Lazer Sword, rallied up the crowd with "big ups to the

Mission" and "hot dogs." Indie winner, Girls, sent in a troop of giggly, barely

legal young ladies to accept their gold award, who said only, "We're the girls

of The Girls--Thank you."

Wallpaper took over the mic with a glittery red cape, fedora

and sunglasses, starting out his bizarrely entertaining set with a rendition of

Biggie Smalls' hit, "I Love It When You Call Me Wallpaper." The dance floor was

overrun with excited bodies who enjoyed the purposefully cheap-version of

Justin Timberlake, toting songs about getting wasted, cheap booze and sex. The

gigantic screen behind Wallpaper's glittery blazer flashed images of old

educational movies and a mixed bag of interesting text. The

night concluded with a DJ set by Lazer Sword and a packed house of club

  • 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.'"
