Good Folks 

Wednesday, Aug 29 2007
Gram Parsons, Sweetheart of the Rodeo-era Byrds, and Bob Dylan in a Nashville Skyline mood hang around the music of Donovan Quinn. As part of the strong local folk-rock scene, Quinn -- who's been involved with Skygreen Leopards, Verdure, and other neo-hippie groups -- brings some country pain to a genre that can get a little flighty. The result is complex layers of slide guitars, organ, and a rhythm guitar that makes us think improbably of Waylon Jennings. Quinn's voice can easily be mistaken for a young Dylan, but Jennings' influences are evident there, too, in straightforward but soulful lyrics. Jean Marie and Jeffrey Manson join Quinn in opening for Chinatown Bakeries, who release an EP tonight.

  • 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.'"
