New Found Glory: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Nov 21 2012

New Found Glory emerged in the early 2000s, right at the point where most of the world thought pop-punk was on the verge of permanent death, and almost singlehandedly revived the entire genre. Going on to throw elements of hardcore and emo into its irresistibly sweet mix, the Florida quintet has managed to maintain a rabid fanbase far longer than many naysayers would've predicted. As such, getting into Bottom of the Hill on Friday or Slim's on Saturday will be tough. But if you're willing to beg, borrow, or steal, we recommend Friday's smaller Bottom of the Hill show. Especially since the much buzzed-about Emily's Army — whose drummer is none other than Joey "Son of Green Day's Billie Joe" Armstrong — is supporting. It's sure to be a pop-punk night to remember.

  • 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.'"
