Wallpaper.: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Mar 21 2012

If the last four months have been any indication, this may be one of Wallpaper.'s last intimate hometown shows for a while. The Oakland crunk-pop outfit was personally signed to Epic Records late last year by noted producer L.A. Reid, and its profile has expanded accordingly: "Best Song Everrr" is playing on radio stations across the country, the band recently roused the crowd on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and its stage show has expanded into a five-person, two-drum-kit party of synchronized clapping, absurd ad-libbing, and throbbing bass. Couple all that with getting profiled in Rolling Stone, and this local favorite seems have its "pop for the 99 percent" on the fast-track to the big time. Catch Ricky Reed and Co. in a small room while you still can.

  • 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.'"
