Interplanetary wonder Erykah Badu, who will be in town to perform at Outside Lands on Aug. 12, will help local promotion outfit Ankh Marketing celebrate its seventh anniversary the same night, performing a DJ gig under her alias Lo Down Loretta Brown.

Badu Brown made her official DJ debut in December in Dallas, but those who follow her on Twitter have been known to be treated to a virtual form of her spinning, usually consisting of hours of YouTube links of popular and forgotten rap and soul jams and gems. She's also entered the mixtape game this week, though, as a host and not a DJ, fronting a new set from Brooklyn's Gods'Illa. The Aug. 12 gig begins at 9 p.m. with local DJ D Sharp. Admission is $20; for more info, call 625-8880 or visit the Mezzanine site.

  • 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.'"
