You'll have to wait two more months to Watch the Throne.
  • You'll have to wait two more months to Watch the Throne.

Last week, Jay-Z and Kanye West announced their Watch the Throne Tour. It was scheduled to stop at San Jose's HP Pavilion on October 16, but apparently all royal marriages take time, and now there will be a two-month delay.

Today Billboard brings word that the tour has been rescheduled, with several cities bumped off the itinerary for now. Luckily, San Jose isn't one of them, and the new performance date is Dec. 10. (Sorry, Sacramento: You aren't looking so lucky at the moment.) Tickets for the HP date go on sale on Aug. 8, the same day that the Watch the Throne album hits iTunes. No word on who will be wearing the crown at the concert, who will perform first, or where they've registered.

  • 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.'"
