Cold Beat: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jan 1 2014

Cold Beat leader Hannah Lew and Tony Molina started 2013 together, when she created a music video for his buoyant guitar anthem "Don't Come Back," a single from Molina's solo debut, Dissed and Dismissed. Technically, the video also encompasses "Sick Ass Riff," a 25-second acoustic etude performed by Molina while wearing a Cro-Mags shirt. Molina's album sold out in the wake of fervent critical praise, but the venerable Slumberland label announced its reissue this year — along with his sophomore full-length. Cold Beat released its first EP in 2013, with two propulsive tracks of jagged guitar swipes and unnerving synths tempered by Lew's inimitable vocals. Since both San Francisco acts began breakthrough years with a collaboration, this joint show welcoming 2014 might prove fortuitous. At any rate, it's free.

  • 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.'"
