New Mogwai Concert Video 'Burning' Streams Today at Noon

If you've never seen a Mogwai concert before, here's your chance to learn what post-rock devotees, European festivalgoers, unsuspecting upstairs neighbors and barefoot deaf people alike have learned over the years: Mogwai concerts are incredibly loud. Vincent Moon and Nathanaël Le Scouarnec, of the beloved take-away-show site La Blogothèque, filmed the Scottish quintet's three-night residency at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in 2009, then got to work editing. The result, entitled Burning, looks to be one hell of a concert film.

Burning is slated for stateside release in August, with a San Francisco screening at the Roxie on September 4th, but you can see all 45 black-and-white-and-loud-all-over minutes today at noon PST, thanks to local mediamongers Ustream -- and stay tuned immediately afterwards for a Q&A session with Vincent Moon and Mogwai guitarist/Terry Gilliam lookalike Stuart Braithwaite. Head over to one of the many blogs who've signed on to host it, from Beachtapes to Chromewaves to The Walrus. (Complete list of participating sites here, second post down.)

  • 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.'"
