Stripmall Architecture: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jun 20 2012

Because it is summer and because we like local bands and because what the hell, SF Weekly and its music blog, All Shook Down, are presenting a show featuring three Bay Area artists. Headlining is S.F's own Stripmall Architecture, the futuristic art-pop band whose penchant for sonic innovation yields dim-hued, synth-driven songs that are both driving and atmospheric. Also playing is Warm Soda — the new, poppier trio led by Matthew Melton, formerly of beloved Oakland garage-pop outfit Bare Wires. Opening is Will Sprott, songwriter and performer par excellence, who's best known for having fronted South Bay outfit the Mumlers.

    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.'"
