Bear in Heaven: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Nov 28 2012

It's a familiar tale: A rock group with electronic leanings trades its murky doodles for dayglow pixels — and plays a beer festival. Well, all but that last bit is common terrain for your identikit synth-rocking indie band. What sets Bear in Heaven apart from similarly dancefloor-friendly psych acts — like School of Seven Bells and Neon Indian — is its lack of studied cool. Believe us when we say this is a good thing. Latest album I Love You, It's Cool features the Brooklyn trio at its earthiest and most companionable. Which should go down just great on a Saturday afternoon sipping beers from Anchor Brewing, 21st Amendment, and other breweries at The Bay Brewed: A Rock and Roll Beer Festival.

  • 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.'"
