Fans of Pixies main man Frank Black/Black Francis should be pleased to know the man has a fresh trick up his multiple moniker sleeve. He's been working on a new act with his wife, Violet Clark, a musical marriage that falls under the name Grand Duchy. The band will showcase its stuff at the Uptown tonight--the only Bay Area sneak preview before the duo heads off to the UK.

  • 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.'"
