@ Bill Graham Civic Auditorium

Looking at those names above, how could it not have been a wild night? Bret Michaels and Tommy Lee in one giant room -- not to mention punk legends the New York Dolls? Plus, a contraption in which Tommy Lee's entire drum throne shoots around a looping mini-rollercoaster? Only these guys could pull off that kind of craziness. Gil Riego has the photos; check out our full slideshow for more.

  • 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.'"
