Watch A B & the Sea Discuss 'California Gurls' Cover, Busking Experience at All Shook Down

Moments after sunny San Francisco indie-pop quartet A B & the Sea came offstage at Sunday's All Shook Down Music Festival, we caught up with singer-guitarist Koley O'Brien for a quick chat. As the Sunday hordes roved Grant Street, Koley told us about the band's days busking on Market Street, its new cover of Katy Perry's 'California Gurls,' and what you learn when you move to San Francisco from Wisconsin. Check it out above. Video by Jason Jurgens.

  • 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.'"
