After touring for the past month and making a name for themselves at SXSW, Birds & Batteries have returned home. Hard to categorize, their music has been called alt-country garage, fuzzy synth psych, or electronic pop, and with their latest EP, Up To No Good, they continue to defy genre. Self-proclaimed "a spooky-funky adventure," the EP is heavily influenced by Bowie's Scary Monsters, P-Funk, and John Carpenter films.

Co-headlining with Oakland natives Judgment Day, they'll bring their electro-funk psychedelic Americana to The Rickshaw Stop on May 28th, and All Shook Down has a pair of tickets for the first reader who comments on how they'd categorize Birds & Batteries (but only 'cause you have to).

  • 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.'"
