A Meric A

Local doodz make good: The Dodos are really just a couple of Bay Area music nerds with a lot of soul. Meric Long and Logan Kroeber have been in many bands, worked many jobs, and toured the country in vans. The new record, though, No Color, is blow-up-big splashtime, having just been popular at Austin and having Neko Case as a backup singer on it. (Emphasis on the backup; don't freak out.) The music is characterized by a percussive dual-guitar sound with big ol' drums, and it will be excellent coming out of your car's music contraption the next time you go out of town. It's exactly what you should expect from the blow-up-big splashtime record of Bay Area music nerds with a lot of soul.

Reading Rainbow opens.

  • 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.'"
