Wednesday, Aug 22 2012

When Bruce Roehrs — singular San Franciscan, longtime Maximum Rocknroll columnist, and unabashed follower of savage rock 'n' roll — passed away in 2010, it incited an surge of support from the local music community. He was laid to rest in the San Francisco Columbarium. Today, his legacy endures. Sydney Ducks, Roadside Bombs, and Synthetic ID will perform this weekend in honor of his birthday. All proceeds benefit the Bruce Roehrs Memorial Fund, and all attendees will receive a copy of Hammers, a record featuring Harrington Saints and Booze & Glory, released by Pirate's Press Records in commemoration of Roehrs.

  • 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.'"
