Watch LA's Baths Perform at Robotspeak in the Lower Haight

Posted By on Thu, Jun 10, 2010 at 12:55 PM

Local electronic music software/gear hot-spot Robotspeak closed its Lower Haight door for the past month as a sort of breather before reopening with new hours and a new business model. The spot opens back up June 18, but until then, Robotspeak has hosted a couple of interesting performers. Yesterday, the UK's Gold Panda made an impromptu live appearance, and this footage comes from a preceding date with one of my current musical favorites, Baths.

Since my last post about LA singer/knob-twiddler Will Wiesenfeld, I've been on a bit of a fanboy slant lately, trying to inundate my eyes and ears with the producer's
unique style of indie-tinged beat music. I came across these videos of the solo artist doing his thing in San Francisco with local videographers Yours Truly documenting the magic. Between his bobbing, button-pushing dance moves, Wiesenfeld belts out lyrics with his high-register voice on these live performance clips of songs from his forthcoming album Cerulean, "Apologetic Should Blades" and "Plea." The sincerely friendly and earnest music maker also talks a bit about his musical inspirations between songs, giving us a little window into where Baths' poignant soundscapes come from.

  • 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.'"
