It's a Tuesday in September 2013, which means that tonight, Nova Albion is playing at Amnesia for free. Nova Albion is a local band named after the term Sir Francis Drake gave to the Pacific coast. And in case you haven't heard, Nova Albion plays an effervescent, super-proficient, somewhat U2-indebted brand of guitar pop. Not in like a hipstery way or a retro-y way or a sludgey or stonery or R&B-y way. Just like, clean, crisp rock that goes pop. Aslo, Nova Albion has naked people and San Francisco in its music videos, which are well-made and fun to watch:

To repeat, the band is playing a residency at Amnesia all this month. Tonight's billing features rap duo EVENODDS; next week it's San Diego rockers Transfer, and after that, it's Mitchell Gonzales and Boys and Girls. Hey, a month of good free live music every Tuesday. This is what you live in San Francisco for. -- @iPORT

  • 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.'"
