The Sounds of Sweden 


When talking indie band popularity these days, the old yardsticks get rubbery. Your lil' bloggin' sis is already tired of I'm From Barcelona, and that act probably sold 713 records. So should this meager mention of the perfectly peppy Euro wave-rock of Sweden's the Sounds automatically make you groan, "Oh, that Swedish thing, whatever," remember it's about good tunes, not good timing. The Sounds' Dying to Say This to You from way back in 2006 is the real, glossy, catchy, sexy thing. Hear for yourself when the group comes to town on Tuesday, Sept. 18, at the Fillmore at 8 p.m. Admission is $22.50; call 346-6000 or visit for more info. —Eric Davidson

Tue., Sept. 18, 8 p.m.

  • 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.'"
