Brazilian Girls @ Social Hall 

Wednesday, Jan 13 2016

Don't get it twisted, yo. The Brazilian Girls are NOT, in fact, Brazilian, nor are they girls (of the four band members, only one is female). But that's sort of the beauty of the band: They aren't who (or what) they purport to be. Their self-titled debut, released in 2005, is a clusterfuck of genres and dialects. It's got everything from electronic, pop, and house, to acid jazz, reggae, and samba. Meanwhile, vocalist Sabina Sciubba sings as many as five different languages. It's been eight years since the band released an album, but the good news is they announced a new project coming up sometime this year. If you like genre-bending music, surprises, and upbeat, danceable jams, then this is a band you've got to see, or, at the very least, start listening to.

  • 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.'"
