2. Coachella's reunions are overrated

The reunion performances that Coachella has become famous for proved to be largely about generating Internet buzz. Gotye played to an audience that was overflowing on either side of the Mojave stage Sunday evening, while Company Flow's final performance together at the Gobi Stage drew an abysmal audience both weekends. No one seemed to be moshing to At The Drive In's reunion after 11 years on hiatus. It seemed like more Coachella kids came for the nonstop half-naked party and No. 1 hits than the supposedly much-anticipated bands.

  • 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.'"
