  • Phish at the Bill Graham Civic last night.

In a scheduling move that would be questionable for, um, pretty much any other band with any other kind of following, Phish played three consecutive nights this week at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.

Last night was the third of three, and as news swept through the crowd that the Giants had done it again (and a different kind of insanity ensued just across the street at City Hall), the band segued seamlessly out of "Moma" and into "We Are the Champions." According to Phish fans (and Phish fans are the people we trust about Phish), this is the first time the band's ever played the tune live.

As you can see in the video below, said Phish fans certainly appreciated it.

  • 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.'"
