Human Giant Hit SF for NoisePop

Posted By on Mon, Feb 11, 2008 at 1:36 PM

Human Giant is the best thing on MTV since The State. That isn't saying much, what with all the inane, soul-reaving programming they spew out, but I digress from my point. You can catch this hilarious three-man troupe as part of the NoisePop Festival Feb. 28 at the Mezzanine. The clip above displays HG's skillful tactics on how to dispatch a mosh pit, but they probably need not worry about one of those erupting at any of NoisePop's sissified schedule of performances.

  • 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.'"
