Still Flyin': Show Preview

What is Still Flyin'? Strictly speaking, it's a band, but only somewhat; really, it's a collective of musically-minded peeps organized — more or less — by a weirdo S.F. transplant named Sean Rawls. His group is actually more like some funky musical cavalry than a regular indie-pop outfit – Still Flyin's partytastic shows regularly feature a dozen or more members dancing, flailing, playing, and otherwise assisting in the production of the jerky, reggae-descended, groove-prone soundtrack that seems to emanate from wherever the ensemble gathers. (Oh, and that's before the friends and fans get onstage and dance, too.) Still Flyin' is also a phenomenon, in that this '04-founded assemblage of oddball humanity has had startling success both on the European festival circuit and on tours of this continent. But despite the gleeful reviews, a series of EPs, and last year's debut album, Still Flyin' has remained slippery enough to leave the question of its ultimate nature less than totally clear.

  • 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.'"
