If public transportation is part of your daily routine, chances are you've already heard a few ditties from Occupella, the group known for riffing off traditional American folk songs to make them 99 percent unique.

But tomorrow, the ensemble will take a break from its cavernous stage at the BART station and head out to the sunshine in front of Bank of America in Bernal Heights where they will be belting out their usual tunes, including "We'll Be Occupying Wall Street When We Come," and "Take Me out of the Big Banks, Take Me out of Their Game."

The group will be accompanying the much-loved and feisty Wild Old Women in their weekly demonstration outside the Bank of America tomorrow afternoon.

We hear all their songs are uplifting. Here are some of our personal favorites, caught on video by Mission Local.

  • 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.'"
