Enslaved: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Feb 6 2013

As a landmark in black metal's blasted wasteland, Enslaved stands out for its willingness to brave such non-kvlt musical outings as prog, clean singing, and castanets. The band's Winter Rite tour churns into town with no less than funeral-doom darlings Pallbearer, fresh from being crowned one of Pitchfork's best new musical acts, and Royal Thunder, whose sound melds Joan Jett, Janis Joplin, and '70s-era occult-rock. Satanic acoustic-metal band Ancient VVisdom — yes, you read that right — will warm things up. It's gonna be epic.

  • 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.'"
