Kind of Blue 

Wednesday, Aug 19 2009
We've admired Quinn DeVeaux's music for years, whether he's in a hot-jazz New Orleans getup sweating the hipsters, scraping hearts raw with his extra-old-fashioned blues getup, or just calling out his own songs alone onstage but for a very beautiful guitar. But now he's got a brand-new bag: Quinn DeVeaux and the Blue Beat Review is an amalgam of all of the above plus the Mission-District–famous standup bass of Kenan O'Brien, a set of sweet backup singers, and drummer Matty Mack. The band's secret weapon, though, is Chris effing Seibert. Although he won't be at tonight's show, he's been Lavay Smith's ivory tickler for forever, so he's guaranteed party gold.

Con Brio and Dirty Boots open.

  • 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.'"
