Grinderman: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Nov 24 2010

Anyone lucky enough to catch the Grinderman shows at Slim's and the Great American Music Hall in 2007 could probably still tell you in vivid Technicolor detail how spectacularly great those performances were. It was an array of old-man suits, suspicious-looking facial hair, and a whole pile of louder-than-God, distortion-fueled songs that made you wanna get down and dirty (filthy goddamn dirty, actually). With the arrival of the quartet's second album — the not-that-creatively-titled, but still wondrous, Grinderman 2 — in September, there's even more to be excited about this time. But we're still secretly hoping the boys find time to throw in a bunch of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds songs like they did last time.

  • 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.'"
