Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
  • Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
In the print section this week, Dan Weiss finds out why Ariel Pink is happy to discuss his personal finances but not his personal life, and discovers the dude has a penchant for saying too much. Meanwhile, David MacFadden-Elliott talks to longtime Paul McCartney Band guitarist Rusty Anderson about how he encountered Paul, and what it's like to play with towering musical figures like the ex-Beatle, Elton John, Ozzy Osbourne, and Santana. Oh -- and our Tamara Palmer heard straight from the Jacka himself that his Bay-born rap group Mob Figaz are trying to balance a street edge with their spiritual (read: Muslim) side.

Lastly: make yourself aware of the Donkeys and Deerhoof playing at Bottom of the Hill Thursday (if you're lucky enough to have tickets -- it's way sold out), and the Ghostly International electronic showcase with Mux Mool and others thumping Mezzanine on Friday.

Following us @SFAllShookDown is not over, no matter what Prince says.

  • 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.'"
