Dum Dum Girls: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Dec 5 2012

Kristin "Dee Dee" Gundred's yelping on Grand Ole Party's stomping blues-punk already cemented her as an indie rock lifer (and worthy Beth Ditto successor). But with Dum Dum Girls, Gundred ushered back into the fold girl-group pop that would pave the way for Vivian Girls and Best Coast, plus droning retro-fuzz that resuscitated the Raveonettes and Pretenders alike. Itching to stay on top, Dee Dee's shucked a new husk with every release. This year's End of Daze peels off the distortion for a back-to-basics move concerning basics before her own time. Listen for "Lord Knows," which evokes no certain decade, just ageless beauty.

    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.'"
