Bob Mould: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Sep 19 2012

Whether you're a Hüsker Dü fan, a Sugar fan, or a solo Bob Mould fan, you should show up enthusiastically for this Friday's performance, since it will focus on Sugar's Copper Blue album — one of the greatest and most important indie records of the 1990s (and that's saying something, given the caliber of alt music from that decade). Mould will play material from his excellent new solo album, Silver Age, too — a project he recently referred to as "simple pop," but which holds its own against the distortion-soaked noise pop that made the current S.F. resident indie-famous. Frankly, we'll be showing up simply for nostalgia-ridden live renditions of "Helpless" and "If I Can't Change Your Mind." You should, too.

  • 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.'"
