The Price Is Fright 

Wednesday, Oct 21 2009
Local heavyish shreddin' indie-rock band Citay lists Black Sabbath as an influence on its MySpace page, so the group's Halloween tribute to Ozzy and the boys isn't coming out of nowhere. Two things make the project more complicated, though: The show works a Bob Saget angle, for one. Citay also lists Joni Mitchell, Toto, and about fifty-hundred other bands as influences, for another (Beyoncé Knowles, Journey, and like that). The fact remains that most of Citay is here to blow our minds via Bob Saggeth, using the above-mentioned maneuvers as well as the magnificent power of dual lead riffing, epic rock drone, and a communal desire to channel Ozzy. Or Dio, for losers.

  • 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.'"
