Seattle's Light in the Attic records has a hold on reissuing underappreciated albums that become classics for generations to come. Detroit's Rodriguez is no exception to their list of great discoveries. Unearthed by the indie label, the Mexican American singer's recording of city strife and urban love affairs, Cold Fact, was a flop in 1970 that's currenly getting airplay on college stations around the country. And now fans will be able to see the underground legend live, when (((FolkYeah))) brings him to the Great American Music Hall on Sunday, Nov. 23. In LA and in San Francisco, he'll be backed by an awesome up and coming local act, the Fresh & Onlys. -- 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.'"
