Morrissey began the first evening of four shows in SF with an old favorite from The Smiths, Stop Me If You Think Youve Heard This One Before. The crowd indeed heard that one before, as Morrisseys voice was drowned out by the massive sing-along.
Sporting a half-unbuttoned and sweaty-as-fuck dress shirt, Moz still hit all the beautiful high notes in his cautionary Why Dont You Find Out for Yourself and the Smiths classic, teeming with sexual innuendo, Stretch Out and Wait.
We dont know what is it about the guy, but many have had to explain their love for the Moz by starting with the disclaimer, You know, Im not gay or nothing, but That usually ends with something theyd never say about another dude, like Id sure like to give him roses, or Id sure like to give him a hug without his shirt on.
Morrissey commanded the audience effortlessly last night and knew just how to work the crowd up. He would bring us to high points of excitement with recognizable favorites, only to tease and calm us down with new songs.

I've never seen so many ridiculous pompadours in my life. Moz excluded.

  • 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.'"
