Can thrash metal survive a decade-and-a-half hibernation? Fans of Berkeley thrash originals Laaz Rockit will find out when the band — founded in 1982, broken up in 1993, and revived in '05 — releases Left for Dead in July. Europe's Massacre Records will distribute it on the Continent; U.S. availability via the band's MySpace page (see link above) seems to be your best bet in North America for now. East Bay suburban headbangers should also know the band has planned a record release party for August 23 at Betty's Rock Bar. But only the most hardcore fans will be able to survive the hairstyle horror of Laaz Rockit's 1980s promo photo — so we'll hide that image after the jump. Click though...if you dare!

  • 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.'"
