Vinyl Williams @ Brick & Mortar Music Hall

Vinyl Williams made a name for himself by taking neo-psychedelic pop to its most kaleidoscopic extreme. Culling inspiration from hippie culture and Ancient Egypt in equal measure, Williams creates sonic tapestries in step with the traditions of his '60s and…

Fear of Men @ Swedish American Hall

Don't let its name throw you off: Fear of Men is not a feminist punk band. It is, however, one of England's most ear-catching and evocative dream pop outfits, anchored by frontwoman Jess Weiss' lilting alto. Reminiscent of Lush and…

Twin Peaks @ The Independent

In an age when irony and apathy are valuable musical currency, Twin Peaks' no-holds-barred sincerity is as surprising as it is disarming. They still behave like the goofy high school friends they were when the band formed, making faces in…

  • 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.'"
