Still Stuck in Your Throat 

Wednesday, Oct 6 2010
Los Angeles rock band Fishbone had a hell of a heyday in the late 1980s and early '90s — because Fishbone rules. Even if (you're soul-dead and) you don't like ska, funk, punk, or metal, you will instantly like Fishbone after hearing the first five seconds of "Party at Ground Zero." Some of us remember the band for its early, hysterically mean pair of anthems, "Ugly" and "Lyin' Ass Bitch," from its debut EP. But the band's biggest success came with the MTV hit "Everyday Sunshine," also the title of a brand-new documentary about the band, screening tonight at the Roxie at 7:15. Three of the original members — Angelo Moore (sax and vocals), John Norwood Fisher (bass and vocals), and Walt Kibby (trumpet and vocals) — lead the band, and will appear at the screening to answer questions. But as various people keep saying in the film, there is nothing better than Fishbone live onstage.

  • 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.'"
