Get more Gayngs tonight. For free!
  • Get more Gayngs tonight. For free!

Those of you titillated by our review of Gayngs' lascivious prom of a set last night at the Independent, hear this: You can see these Minneapolis smooth-rock serpents again in S.F. Tonight. For the price of an email. We still can't say for certain whether this hilarious band -- which features Har Mar Superstar and occasionally Bon Iver's Justin Vernon -- is for real or a joke, but this show, we are sure, is a damn good deal.

Tonight's show is the first in the Clift Sessions, a free concert series in the Velvet and Redwood rooms inside S.F.'s Clift Hotel. Performing next are Brit rock upstarts the Vaccines this Sunday, followed by Ride's Mark Gardender on June 27, throwback indie-poppers Cults on July 24, and minimalist tape/noise/whatever act Dirty Beaches on August 19.

All shows are free, but you must RSVP to to get in. You can reserve yourself a table by calling 415-929-2372. Unlike your actual prom, the consumption of booze is condoned.

  • 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.'"
