More BARF!

Important news, record fans. The Bay Area Record Fair -- which launched a daylong celebration of locally sourced sounds at Thee Parkside in February -- is coming back for a second edition. Maybe organizers

Father/Daughter Records and Professional Fans were juiced by the fact that we gave them a Best Of award in May, or maybe they're just obsessed with gathering the music-minded multitudes of the Bay Area for daytime drinks, vinyl dealing, and live music. Very likely they're just crazy. In any case, Bay Area Record Fair Version 2.0 is coming to Thee Parkside on Saturday, Sept. 27, for you to buy music direct from your favorite local labels, win stuff, and see bands (names of bands yet to be determined). Also, this Thursday, July 3, Bay Area Record Fair is hosting a pop-up shop at California Academy's Nightlife, where Two Gallants and Jamie Jams are also spinning records.

Here are some of the local music purveyors planning to ride the second wave of BARF:

1-2-3-4 Go!

Aerobic International

Alternative Tentacles

Antenna Farm

Asian Man

Bright Antenna


Castle Face

Chapter Eleven

All of which (and more!) are gathering on Sept. 27 at Thee Parkside, presented by SF Weekly and Amoeba Music. Entry is free from noon-on, but you can get in early bird-style (at 11 a.m.) for merely $5. There will be raffles for goodness, pukey tote bags, and live bands performing. Plus lots of chances to support your local music everything. Say it with us now: A BARF-y Saturday is a beautiful Saturday.

  • 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.'"
