Doe Eye: Show Preview 

Wednesday, May 28 2014

With all the raw, blistered drums and bass fuzz of a late-'90s MoWax production, Doe Eye's debut album, T E L E V I S I O N, kicks off like the Kool-Aid man crashing through a brick wall. Over the next 36 minutes, San Francisco's own Maryam Qudus keeps pouring on the sweet stuff — honeyed vocals, reverbed melodies — over oftentimes wavy, jarring production that's equally at home in the coffeehouse and the punkhouse. Live and on stage, Qudus cuts a Clara Bow figure while entrancing a room, and she returns to the city this week to finish a nationwide tour accompanied by her new album's steady and worthy climb up the college charts.

  • 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.'"
