Fun with Neko 

Wednesday, Jun 29 2011
Dear Neko Case, after you're done blissing out the crowd at the outdoor park show, here are some things San Francisco might do for you. (Besides having brung you your pals the Dodos.) You could go on a whale-watching boat trip, although eight hours is probably more time than you have to spare and does your harmonist, the silver-voiced Kelly Hogan, really want to do that? She would probably like Vice Palace, the gay hippie musical, but the dudes in your band -- are they ready for the amount of swingin' dong our beloved local production dishes out? Perhaps it would be easier to talk those brilliant musicians into seeing the “Wicked Plants” show at the Conservatory of Flowers. Which is near the Academy of Sciences which contains Claude the albino alligator btw. But surely your whole intelligent, poetical, rooty-country entourage would enjoy the San Francisco Mime Troupe's 2012: The Musical, in Dolores Park all weekend. Try the salted caramel Bi-Rite ice cream, Neko! It's one of the only things we know of that's as good as hearing your songs.

  • 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.'"
