Ask a High School Debater: Trump vs. Clinton Breaks All The Rules

Heavy Breathing #5 with Sofía Córdova At Starline Social Club.

Have you ever gotten so lost in the music at a club that you’re completely in tune with your body and your thoughts fade into the background? This feeling of being physically present is a key principle of meditation, which is why, for many people, nightlife can be a quasi-spiritual experience.…

The Seshen At UC Theatre.

People have said The Seshen resembles a United Nations meeting because the seven-piece East Bay band is about as diverse as a small group of people can get. The ensemble, led by a husband-wife duo composed of vocalist Lalin St. Juste and bassist Aki Ehara, layers soulful vocals with psychedelic electronics and a rich tapestry of jazzy pop instrumentation.…

Tricky and Rituals of Mine At the Independent

UK producer Tricky is one of those versatile visionaries whose work always tip-toes between pop accessibility and experimentation. The trip-hop pioneer got started in the early Nineties making dark, pared down beats and recruiting various vocalists to execute his vision — though his own whispery, chilling voice is a staple in his work.…

Dance with Your Arms Up at 'Hairy Pits'

The mini-festival brings queer and feminist punk to San Francisco's Thrillhouse Records. When asked about their mission, the three members of San Francisco band Late Bloom — singer Riley Davis, drummer Krizta Em, and guitarist Francis Percy — modestly described themselves as "three friends supporting each other in their varied identities through music." But this humble answer is an understatement when it comes to the group's impact on the local punk scene.…
