The Pipettes are hot and catchy and playing Bimbo's on the 29th. From SF Weekly:

Maybe it's because of Dreamgirls' Oscar win, or the popularity of Pussycat Dolls Presents: The Search for the Next Doll, but whatever the reason, the manufactured retro retread of the Pipettes could not be more perfectly timed. As a choreographed Brits-do-Brill Building indie grrrl group —the Shangri-Las and Stacey Q with a cheeky wink — this sassy trio is winning/breaking hearts. Even if conceived merely to allow thrift store raiders to don their polka-dotted dresses, the Pipettes would be excusable for producing giddy singles "Your Kisses Are Wasted on Me" and "Pull Shapes."

  • 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.'"
