Reminder: KUSF May Be off the Air, But Its Rock 'n' Swap Is Still Happening this Weekend

Sadly this is now memorabilia, too.

Every day brings new developments in the KUSF story: Today, it came out that some of University of San Francisco's faculty wants the university to cancel the sale, and just a few moments ago, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a resolution opposing the sale of the nearly 37-year-old freeform community radio station.

Thankfully, amidst all this chaos, one thing about KUSF hasn't changed: the KUSF Rock 'n' Swap, a long-running orgy/sale/celebration of music memorabilia, including vinyl, CDs, posters, and other good music-related wares.

The Rock 'n' Swap goes down this Sunday at McLaren hall on the USF campus, just as it has for more than 20 years, starting at 10 a.m. and running until 3 p.m. Admission is $3 for everyone except USF students, staff, and faculty, but dedicated swappers and shoppers can get in at 6 a.m. for $20.

That's a small price to get into one of the biggest record swaps in the state, and all the proceeds go to benefit the now online-only (but ad-free!) KUSF. More info is here.

So, dear KUSF supporters, crate-diggers, and other music obsessives -- see you Sunday?

  • 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.'"
