Fleet Foxes: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Sep 7 2011

Watching a neo-folk band in Berkeley ordinarily means spending the evening watching students get stoned and rubbing up against piles of hippies. But Fleet Foxes are no ordinary nostalgia-fest. Their scope goes so far beyond the genre that their audience is now as diverse as you'll encounter. It's all thanks to the Seattle sextet's beautiful intermingling of '60s folk sensibilities with modern indie panache and a touch of soul. And don't forget that singer Robin Pecknold's echoing vocals — and all those lush harmonies the band members are famed for — should sound spectacular in a large amphitheatre.

  • 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.'"
