Even though they don't look like it, Xiu Xiu is fighting mad! Along with a plethora of other pissed-off indie bands, they've filed a class action lawsuit against R.J. Reynolds and Wenner Media, parent companies of Camel Cigarettes and Rolling Stone magazine, respectively. They contend that the magazine coupled their feature with a Camel ad. If the court goes toward Xiu Xiu's favor, they could see their share of what could be as much as a $195.3 billion lawsuit .Welcome to Flavor Country, Xiu Xiu. It's a big country. -- Oscar Pascual

  • 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.'"
