Concert preview: Rogue Wave 

Wednesday, Apr 28 2010

Rogue Wave's recent Noise Pop show at Bottom of the Hill was certainly a scene to see and be seen at — and the band's first hometown gig in support of the new Permalight on Friday deserves to feel equally celebratory. It isn't every day that a local act makes it to the top of a Fillmore bill, and Rogue Wave's bright 'n' shiny new tunes seem perfectly suited to help the Oakland outfit make the most of this triumphant headlining gig. If it's been a while since you've seen Zach Rogue and Co., you might not recognize all the faces onstage, and there's a chance that you'll be taken aback by Permalight's more exuberant tunes. But Rogue Wave still knows how to make the most of an indie-rock melody.

  • 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.'"
