Feminists in Machismo-Land 

Wednesday, Aug 31 2011
It’s not uncommon for girls to grow bored with a male-dominated music scene, which is why some choose to grab it by the plums -— Kathleen Hanna, anyone? It’s no different for Mexican feminist punk band Las Ultrasonicas, who most definitely grabbed the Mexico City scene by the cojones. The documentary Everybody’s Dying Here, shot and edited by Ultrasonicas guitarist Ali Gardoki, follows the band in its attempt to break stereotypes in the face of aggressive all-male audiences chanting “show me your boobs!” Following the film is a Q&A with Gardoki and KPFA’s Miguel Guerrero.

  • 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.'"
