The Breeders: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Aug 21 2013

If you, like us, were heartbroken to find out that Kim Deal isn't responsible for the backing vocals on the Pixies' recent single "Bagboy" (that's Bunnies vocalist Jeremy Dubs), and won't be on the next Pixies tour (Kim Shattuck from the Muffs is doing it), you are probably as thrilled as we are to hear that Ms. Deal is finally bringing the Breeders back to S.F. With the original lineup in tow (featuring twin sister Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs, and Jim Macpherson), San Francisco is the perfect place to celebrate the 20th anniversary of 1993's recently reissued, platinum-selling smash, Last Splash. This, after all, is where the album was recorded in the first place. This will be a lot of people's first time hearing "Cannonball" live, so expect screams from the first "Aaah-ooo-oooh!"

  • 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.'"
