What would happen if District 9 happened in the City the by the Bay? It'd look something like this new clip for "My Revenge," from local rockers King Loses Crown. The super high-quality clip shows a San Francisco ruled by robots -- they're in the Japanese Tea Garden, on the streets of the Mission, in the dirty bathroom of your favorite bar. And they're, well, kinda scary. The clip was directed by Jim Mitchell, who did the visual effects for films like the Harry Potter series, Sleepy Hollow, and Jurassic Park III, so the robot street people and robots making out are unsettlingly vivid. King Loses Crown provides the driving, industrial-rock soundtrack to one of the best local music videos we've seen all year. Check it out:

  • 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.'"
