Ty Segall Will Be Jamming With Little Kids at Indie Mart This Weekend

Along with the many reasons to go to Indie Mart this Sunday, there's this: S.F. garage-rocker of note Ty Segall will be jamming out onstage with kids from the San Francisco Rock Project, a nonprofit offering music education to local kids ages 7 to 18. If this sounds like it might be the cutest thing ever, let us assure you: It will be. Segall is already kind of like a little kid who plays with fuzz pedals and tours around the country and puts out excellent albums. Seeing him play live with kids will likely be to normal notions of cute what Segall's guitar sound is to normal notions of distorted. We'll just put in a request now for a rousing rendition of "Louie Louie."

The Segall/kid jam is only one entry on a long roster of musical performances at the Indie Mart's five-year celebration this Sunday. Also on the bill is Bobb Saggeth (just guess which legendary heavy metal band they're in tribute to), Hooves, Disappearing People, and Meat Market. And that's just the music, of course. Given that this is Indie Mart, there will also be food trucks, beer, and more than 110 local vendors selling crafts, pottery, clothing, furniture, art, books, bags, and probably other things.

This edition of Indie Mart takes place on Sunday, Aug. 19, on Wisconsin St. between 16th and 17th streets, near Thee Parkside. It starts at 12 noon, and costs $3. It's all-ages (obviously), and pet friendly, too. There will be cool, cute stuff to buy. And probably even cuter things to watch.

  • 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.'"
