Musicians React to Marriage Equality on Social Media

Posted By on Mon, Jun 29, 2015 at 9:15 AM

Let's face it, Friday's landmark ruling on marriage from the Supreme Court was the most-perfectly timed way to kick Pride weekend up ten levels we'd never imagined. It was also, of course, a major cause to celebrate, a long-awaited relief, and a key step in the continued fight for LGBTQ equality. And it wasn't just the streets of San Francisco that erupted in celebrations — musicians did it all over social media as well. Here are some of the most glorious responses...

  • 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.'"
