It's a little-known fact that The Queen is Dead is an outright flawless album. Well, except for "Some Girls are Bigger Than Others." What the fuck kind of idea for a song is that, Morrissey? Instead of getting a VH1 special where a bunch of know-it-all talking heads gush over how awesome the album is for one hour, the album gets its very own tribute DVD. Titled The Queen is Dead: A Classic Under Review, the DVD comes out June 10, and is sure to make you feel all warm inside and affirm your love for Moz and The Smiths, even without the commentary of some jerkface from Best Week Ever. -- ASD Staff Report

  • 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.'"
