  • Guerrero: Doin' his part for Japan.
In just the latest of several Japan earthquake benefit shows to hit S.F., local skater/musical mastermind Tommy Guerrero has announced plans with the food and drink lovers over at Umamimart for a special event at the Crescent Hotel's Burritt Room. Guerrero, who recently dropped a new album of jazzy-folky-rock-y instrumental jamming called Lifeboats and Follies, will bring a full band to the show, along with several DJs. All the proceeds from the event will go to Second Harvest Japan, a Tokyo-based organization that's essentially Japan's first food bank.

The Gift of Food benefit goes down next Tuesday, April 5, at the Burritt Room, with food from Peko-Peko Japanese catering and Sandbox Bakery. The cost is $40 advance/$45 door -- but remember, all of it goes to help provide food and essentials to the people of Northern Japan.

  • 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.'"
