What to Do? Tuesday's Pick:

Posted By on Tue, Dec 15, 2009 at 7:42 AM


Late Night Live w/ Black Quarterback @ Yoshi's

A few months ago the Examiner quoted a restaurant consultant's report decrying the music at Yoshi's: "No soul, no funk, no personality." Ouch. Had none of those surveyed been to Yoshi's Fillmore outpost on a Tuesday? That's when Bay Vibes hosts its weekly Late Night Live event, at which bands like Spaceheater's Blast Furnace, Black Quarterback, and others bring their informal intermixes of jazz, Latin, soul, funk, and - can you believe it? - actual personality to the lounge area stage. OK, so it might not be a crunk dusk-to-dawn rager with OutKast and Bootsy Collins. An all-night Bootzilla bash would cost you a helluva lot more than Late Night Live's ultra-low $3 entry fee, though. While Yoshi's can definitely get spendy, this could be the most affordable source of Fillmore District funk since the '70s ended. (9:30 p.m.)

  • 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.'"
