Show Preview: The Dead Weather 

Wednesday, Jul 21 2010

What do the White Stripes, Queens of the Stone Age, the Kills, and the Greenhornes have in common? Rock supergroup the Dead Weather. With Jack White on drums and occasional guitar, Dean Fertita of Queens of the Stone Age on lead six-string and keys, Jack Lawrence of the Raconteurs and Greenhornes on bass, and the Kills' Alison Mosshart screaming lead vocals, the four have put all their hard-rocking musical tastes in a blender and slammed the purée button. What comes out is a sound that can only be described as overtly badass. Mosshart's crazy stage theatrics and White's impeccable talents make for a live show guaranteed to blow everyone's booze-soaked brains.

    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.'"
