Seek the Booty: The Treasure Island Music Festival is one of the Bay Area's best live music events, and to celebrate its fifth anniversary, this year's lineup is a doozy -- a collection of some of the greatest artists working in the worlds of electronica and indie rock. Here are some of the acts we're especially looking forward to.


Geographer: What a beautiful way to start the day. This San Francisco-based trio makes low-key but gorgeous, emotionally driven songs that somehow always have a sense of urgency in the background (check out the Animal Shapes EP if you don't believe us). If you have an overwhelming desire to hear a synthesizer and a cello at the same time, or if you're having a personal crisis you need to dance your way through, don't miss these up-and-comers. Noon, Bridge stage

Sizzle & Fizzle: Highs and lows from the last week in S.F. music.

Also, we recommend shows from High Castle, Ray Manzarek and Roy Rogers, Heidi, and Van Hunt.

  • 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.'"
