broken hearts in his wake 

Wednesday, Oct 2 2013

The former loves of Davy Rothbart are probably pretty pissed at him by now. Since his essay collection My Heart Is An Idiot hit the shelves last year, Rothbart — creator of FOUND Magazine, filmmaker, and contributor to NPR program This American Life — has recounted his sometimes endearing, sometimes excruciating love blunders live on tour all over the country. Lucky for him, this year's Unfinished Business Tour sends him on stage with a particularly talented entourage, should any of the aforementioned ladies show up to exact revenge on the Idiot. His little brother, musician Peter Rothbart, accompanies him on tour to perform songs inspired by finds from the magazine. Long awaited new issue FOUND #9 just came out, as well as a new album compiling the elder Rothbart's work on This American Life, giving both brothers much fodder to tug at your heartstrings with.

  • 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.'"
