Blondie: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Sep 18 2013

In the late 1970s and early '80s, Deborah Harry, Chris Stein, and the other members of Blondie were the mainstream ambassadors for New York's punk rock underground. On the other side of the country, X were noisy provocateurs who lived, breathed, and spat out Los Angeles' seedy underbelly. The coming together of both of these iconic bands on one bill is an enormous deal, because it represents a bi-coastal union of the original punk rock mindset. It also promises to be an insanely good time, thanks to Blondie's effervescent hits and X's startling exorcisms, as well as the fact that both Deborah Harry and X's Exene Cervenka remain two of the most charismatic frontwomen in rock history.

    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.'"
