Phono Del Sol is next weekend, July 11, at Potrero Del Sol Park. But before you head over there to catch some tunes and grab a bite to eat, you need to watch Tanlines' new video for "Palace."

The electronic indie rock duo kept the Netflix theme from its hilarious website going by enlisting the help of Natasha Lyonne (from Orange Is The New Black) to star in the new video alongside Alex Karpovsky (from Girls). The video follows the couple through its various disputes, moments of reconciliation, and fantasies in a way that's both humorous and poignant. It also pokes fun at the idea that Tanlines frontman Eric Emm looks exactly like Karpovsky.

Check out the video, and its highly danceable, melodic, synth-heavy tune below. My favorite part is the one involving extension chords:
Tanlines play Phono Del Sol next Saturday, July 11. Tickets are $30-$60.

  • 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.'"
