Brothers Comatose: Show Preview 

Wednesday, May 16 2012

The Brothers Comatose know irony: This San Francisco quintet's brand of American roots music is anything but snoozeworthy. With a stylistic palette that includes high-bounce bluegrass and soulful folk, the band revels in forward-moving melodies, cleanly interwoven harmonies, and the bump-and-pluck of geetar, mandolin, fiddle, banjo, and upright bass. Seasoned road warriors with a number of festival gigs under their belts, the Brothers know a group's touring vehicle is its lifeline; hence the title of their new album, Respect the Van. They also understand that music-making is a community experience, a good time to be shared by performers and audience alike. With this in mind, you're encouraged to bring your dancing boots to the Brothers Comatose's album release party.

  • 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.'"
