  • You can see Coachella bands without leaving the Bay Area. Yes!

You want to see a bunch of artists that are playing Coachella 2014, but not necessarily while baking under the sun near people from L.A. We are here to help, with this guide to the cornucopia of upcoming Bay Area live dates. Let us remind you that it's Jan. 10 as we write this, and much of the concert industry machinery hasn't even begun whirling at full tilt yet, so many shows/tours/albums have yet to be announced.

  • 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.'"
