Somewhere between the Donnas and the Muffs, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and the Trashwomen, Sassy!!! throws down. (Seriously, that lineup is a rumble we'd love to see.) We fell for Sassy!!! when the two-woman band opened — along with the Go-Going-Gone Girls, who look like they were drawn by comix gods Los Bros Hernandez — for the Slits nearly a year ago. Drummer Kitty Largewood (Christa DiBiase) and guitar player Trixie Delicious (Lynda Mandolyn) jumped onstage to sing volunteer backup vocals when Slits leader Ari Up asked if anyone in the room could do so, thus earning themselves permanent goddess status. Sadly, Up passed away recently; we're pretty sure the women of Sassy!!! won't ever forget her. Instead, they're likely to keep her in mind as they pound out short, muscular songs full of pop harmonies, punk beats, and severely catchy lyrics like "When you kissed me I wanted more — then I fell face down on the floor."

Sassy!!! plays with Burnt House and Times Infinity.

  • 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.'"
