Turn Me On Dead Man: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Aug 28 2013

Offering up a tasty collision of tuneful '60's psychedelia, '70s glam bombast, and '90s stoner-rock crunch, San Francisco's Turn Me On Dead Man has been doling out its compelling brand of lysergic guitar fury for over a decade. Led by songwriter and guitarist Mykill Ziggy, the group became a local club favorite during the '00s with its penchant for epic, Bowie/Bolan-esque space rock and paint-peeling volume. Ending an extended hiatus with the recent release of We Are the Star People — its fourth effort for Alternative Tentacles and first new album in four years — the band delivers a long-overdue round of glorious interstellar anthems. Turn Me On Dead Man makes a welcome return to the stage with this week's record-release party, featuring able support from local punk sleaze merchants Rare Animals.

  • 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.'"
