Nerds and music fans alike came out for Yuri's Night, an all day event that took place in Mountain View at NASA Ames. The Black Keys, Common, Les Claypool and N.E.R.D (of course) played at the party celebrating Yuri Gagarin, the Russian cosmonaut.

    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.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
