  • All the Black Lips' mayhem can be yours, free -- egg nog optional.
This latest show-as-free-advertising at least has good taste -- and we're talking about the bands, people, not the booze. (Nothing against rum; sorry, Maroon 5!) Sailor Jerry is paying your way to a good-ol' garage-rock slam with Atlanta feist-dogs the Black Lips, S.F. freaks Thee Oh Sees, and East Bay leather-lovers Bare Wires. The free-for-all (ahem!) goes down right in the midst of Christmas party season, so best clear your schedule ahead of time.

The triple garage-threat happens Saturday, December 11, at what the concert poster (see below) calls "SF Works" -- which, curiously, has the exact same address (161 Erie St.) as one SF Public Works, a newly established gathering place for beat-slinging deejays and their devotees. Hmmmmmmm....

You rock kids can help break in that springy new hardwood dance floor for the price of a handful of pocket lint -- all ya gotta do is RSVP here. Mayhem begins at 8 p.m. No word on whether there'll be egg nog to go with all that rum, but here's hoping.

  • 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.'"
