TOKiMONSTA has one of the most inspiring stories in music today. Toward the end of 2015, Jennifer Lee AKA TOKiMONSTA, was diagnosed with a rare brain disease where she lost the ability to speak and even comprehend music. She has since had to re-teach herself to not only write music, but physically understand it. We're happy she is happy and healthy,...

Jack Ü will be breaking records today (at least we think) by live streaming a 24-hour continuous DJ set starting today at 1pm PST/4pm EST.

EOTO once again showed their artistic and collaborative chops this past friday at the Independent in San Francisco. An EOTO show is just something you have to experience.

The group has been undercover killing it in the jamband scene for the last decade making a name...
Bassnectar ended his NVSB tour at San Francisco's Bill Graham this past Saturday to a packed house. With GRiZ opening the night to some serious funk, the room was ready to rage with Lorin correct. Throughout the night he ripped through his new album as well as some classics like "Wildstyle Method," "Upside Down," and a killer ending of...

Words by Pearl Wight | Photos by Patrick Hagan A few weeks back at Cooks Valley Campground on the Humboldt/Mendocino county line in NorCal was the Northern Nights Music Festival and we were fortunte enough to be in attendance.

The official music video for the banger Diplo & GTA collab "Boy Oh Boy," was released yesterday via VICE channel Noisey. This song was blasted all around the world by Major Lazer and has been a key transition track in many DJ's arsenal over the last year. Seems fitting that Mad Decent should decide to take one of their...
Colorado local boy, Alex B. AKA Paper Diamond, makes good. Well that's kind of an old story. If you haven’t been keeping up with this self-made success story, you’ve been sleeping. After enjoying a few years of underground success with a more indie electronic sound and releases on some of the game’s biggest labels like Pretty Lights Music and...
Last Sunday night was Finger Lickin' Fort Mason, a dirty indoor rave with Laidback Luke, Adventure Club and DJ Snake that ended early so people could get up and go to work the next day. Only in San Francisco. Here is Patrick Hagan's photo gallery from the show. --Editor
Bluetech comes across like a smooth drink of fine Irish whiskey; a transcendental groove that has a refreshingly elevating quality. The amount of levity packed into the downtempo stylings of Bluetech is a light breeze from darker shades of ambient and downtempo from similar artists. Evan Bluetech brought his act to The Chapel in San Francisco earlier this month...
“This one’s for the NorCal massive!” The potent words shouted by Kaskade whilst standing atop his DJ setup and gazing out over his devoted masses packed in amongst the evergreens and beer gardens. By this point in his show he had already won each and everyone of their hearts and minds. Every person in his audience, myself included, is...

Most bands put up a rational facade to hide their inner weirdness and commercialize themselves, but Beats Antique says, "to hell with that, we want you to party in animal heads on stage with us." I got the chance to ask Beats Antique members David Satori, Sidecar Tommy, and Zoe Jakes a few questions before shooting the final show...
The groove that Gramatik lays down is his defining characteristic. Funk, jazz, blues, and soul are all ingredients in his recipe of a bass-heavy blend of hip-hop and electronic beats. And on a Saturday night a week back at San Francisco’s legendary Fillmore, the groove was business as usual for Gramatik who played to a sold-out crowd of ravers...
Get your funky shoes out; Gramatik is coming to town. The Slovenian native who ascended through the ranks of the hip-hop/glitch scene as a part of the Pretty Lights Music family is more on top of his game than ever these days. As a recent founder of his own label, Lowtemp records, and as a staple act in...
Bassnectar kicked off the first night of his Immersive Music Tour in Oakland last Friday the 19th with support from Andreilein (formerly Heyoka) and Koan Sound. His set was nothing short a bass-powered frenzy of headbanging to his signature “Amorphous music,” covering everything from heavy dubstep, drum and bass, 808, trap, hip-hop influences, and some sounds that can best...

Sonic Bloom, “Colorado’s Premier Boutique Music Festival,” (as it is billed) returns to Georgetown, CO on June 13-16 for a weekend of thumping basslines, eclectic artists, and general weirdness in the sleepy yet gorgeous Colorado hills. The festival bears close resemblance to Southern California’s Lightning in a Bottle Festival and has become a staple in the Colorado Bass and...
A good energy at a show is one that is cultivated through energy, sound, and crowd response.

The Los Angeles based producer has been making huge waves in the Los...
Flogging Molly came to Oakland’s Fox Theater this past weekend and unleashed a serious can of Irish whoop-ass (also known as Guinness) on everybody. The seven-piece Celtic Punk group has been recording and playing for nearly 15 years now and their hilariously fun and boisterous live show reflects both their talent in musicianship as well as their combined love...
The French duo Justice took to The Warfield in SF on Sunday with their blend of heavy rock, disco, and dancefloor bangers that kept the crowd glued to the stage and jumping all night. Parisians Gaspard Auge and Xavier de Rosnay, respectively in below photos, have been tearing up dancefloors around the world in the last six years after...
Crystal Castles invaded Oakland’s Fox Theater a few weeks back with their arsenal of seizure inducing strobe lights, high-energy electro-punk beats, and moody experimental electronic. All this paired with pragmatic front-woman Alice Glass’ non-stop onslaught of crowd surfing and on-stage trance induced screaming made for one hell of a show. Having seen the group several times before at larger...
Pretty Lights visited the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco this Friday with supporting acts DJ Shadow, Marty Party, and Paul Basic in what ended up being a floor-to-ceiling sold out show of Glitch Hop, Dubstep, and lasers galore. It’s hard to say if the already sizeable indoor auditorium could hold a single extra person as people packed...
