Dominant Legs: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Oct 27 2010

Now that fall has come in earnest to our fair city, it's only right to remember the joys of summer with a sweet pang of nostalgia. There's no better accompaniment for that sentiment than Dominant Legs, the burgeoning folk-pop project of sometime Girls guitarist Ryan Lynch and fellow Bay Area native Hannah Hunt: The duo's debut EP, Young at Love and Life (Lefse), sounds like a day at the beach alternately marred and sweetened by persistent cloud cover. Also playing is Holy Shit (not to be confused with Toronto post-rock outfit Holy Fuck), the Los Angeles–based duo of Matt Fishbeck and freak-folk journeyman Ariel Pink, whose nervous ditties sound like a day at the beach just before an oil tanker capsizes offshore.

    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.'"
