Guitarist Jameson Swagnon showed-off his goldmine of talent by performing both with Rad Cloud and Grand Lake. The latter took their job seriously as the first act in last night's lineup, crowd-rousing led by the impressive fervor of their charismatic front man, Caleb Nicols. For the group's grand finale, Nicols left the stage, dropped his guitar on the dance floor, and paced determinedly towards the back of the venue while simultaneously screaming out the end of the song. There will undoubtedly be more grand exits in store from Grand Lake at future performances.

Critic's Notebook

Shout out: to the crowd, for filling the venue on hump day.

  • 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.'"
