Final Exit

Anyone inclined to codify the principles that prop up the bloated enigma that is Urge Overkill should look no further than "Empire Builder," from the band's 1990 Americruiser LP. Beginning as a cryptic ode to the Protestant work ethic as…

  • 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 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.'"
