Greek Theatre, Berkeley

The Extra Action Marching Band started Saturday's Oddity Faire off with a furry, interactive performance, eventually dancing its way through the crowd. Vau De Vire was up next, with beauties doing death-defying trapeze, and ribbon and fire dancers. Omar Rodriquez Lopez opened up for the headliner, Primus, which kept fans singing along to "Jerry was a Racecar Driver" and many of the band's enormous hits, all the while the guests screamed "Primus sucks!" And of course the band showed us different. All photos by Calibree photography; setlist after the jump.

  • 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.'"
