1960s Folk Rock Screening at Page St. Library

Posted By on Wed, Oct 8, 2008 at 11:12 AM

Local rock historian Richie Unterberger is once again hosting his free and fabulous music-focused video footage series at the Page St. Library next week. On Wednesday, Oct. 15, from 7 until 9 p.m., Unterberger will hone his vast collection of rare interview and performance clips down to a focus on 1960 folk rock. This means cool scenes from the Byrds, Bob Dylan, Donovan, Simon & Garfunkel, Love, Fairport Convention, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, the Lovin' Spoonful, Richard & Mimi Farina, Pentangle, Leonard Cohen, Richie Havens, Tim Buckley, Buffy Sainte-Marie, the Youngbloods, Judy Collins, Peter, Paul & Mary, and others. As always, my advice is to arrive early: these events very quickly become standing room only. -- Jennifer Maerz

  • 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.'"
