New AFI Side Project: Blaqk Audio

Posted By on Thu, Aug 2, 2007 at 3:36 PM

Davey Havok and Jade Puget from AFI have a new eyeliner-friendly project in the works called Blaqk Audio. And this is no minor basement-band startup, either, judging from the duo's hyper-slick website. From the couple songs available (full-length debut CexCells is out Aug. 14) the group's sound is straight up Depeche Mode -- all gloomy, moody synth pop, with a wintry video to match. The band plays Popscene Thursday, Aug. 30. -- Jennifer Maerz

  • 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.'"
