Starline Social Club
has been a bit of a haunt for me lately. Even living in San Francisco, I've found the BART ride to Downtown Oakland and short walk to Starline to be totally chill. Walking in to the comfortable main bar area, with tables lining the walls, a DJ playing mellow tunes, and bomb cocktails at the bar, is an inviting experience. 

The facility has been totally remodeled from it's grungy past and now feels like, well, a social club. The upstairs show-space has a smaller bar setup of it's own and a large stage in the corner. Tonight, this will be the scene of Oakland-based label Oaktown Indie Mayhem's showcase featuring Bay Area artists Lila Rose, Yassou and There's Talk. Better yet, it's only $10. Here's some ear candy:

Oakland's Lila Rose makes sultry indie pop and her set is tabbed as a "Full Multimedia Theatrical Performance." Peep the video for "Confessions":

Yassou is led by mesmerizing vocalist Lilie Bytheway Hoy and are premiering their new EP at the show. They've put together some artistic videos like the Ocean Beach dream-like sequence of "To Sink":

Olivia Lee's There's Talk project creates gazy atmospheres through Lee's comforting vocals and digital instrumentation that shines. I dig the drum sequencing in "the Salt" (below) and they'll be dropping a new single at the show:

  • 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.'"
