Long Time No See 

Wednesday, Sep 29 2010
The recent Hope Sandoval show renewed our desire to rehear the epic, off-kilter women's voices that emerged in the early 1990s. Sandoval was even better than we had hoped — she didn't foreground her Mazzy Star hits, but she did put the entire audience into a swaying, lovestruck trance. The Cowboy Junkies released several classic albums at about that time, notably 1988's The Trinity Session, which is made of meditative country-roots music, shimmery microphones, and Margo Timmins' sexy-philosopher voice; she has no equal. Currently, the Junkies' original, never-changed lineup is focused on Renmin Park, a new album of poetic musings about China. May Sinead O'Connor visit us soon.

  • 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.'"
