Garage Rock, Baby 

Wednesday, Jun 1 2011
Fellow San Franciscans, the time has come to slip on your jean jackets and go see the father of garage rock – Michael Yonkers. We all know that we adore garage rock, we come from a city that has produced some of the crème de la crème -- two words: Ty Segall. Yonkers provides music that is stripped-down, raw, and carries the essence of loving and creating underground rock 'n' roll. Modifying his own equipment and having released albums on his own label, he is a DIY darling. A veteran of over forty years of rock 'n' roll, he truly is, if not the father, definitely a trailblazer of garage rock. Openers the Sandwitches create songs with beautiful Americana vocals and 1960s garage rock beats. These are girls who are definitely girl-crush worthy -- they sing songs that make you sway with happiness. To top off the night, those of you who want to get down and get funky, can boogie to a set by Bronze.

  • 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.'"
