Good Golly, Miss Molly! 

Wednesday, Dec 26 2007
According to Wikipedia, UK group the Psychedelic Furs is more than just a random band on a soundtrack, actually inspiring the John Hughes teen flick classic Pretty in Pink with the 1981 song of the same name. More than two decades later, the odd and moody almost-ballad that heralded the modern rock era is still the tune most closely tied to the Furs and the one (along with other hits like "Love My Way" and "Heartbreak Beat") that still keeps the franchise afloat. But while it's usually pretty darn foolish to go to a show like this expecting anything other than the good old standards, the group (still helmed by original members Richard and Tim Butler) has been in the studio and may actually spring some new material on the audience. Nevada City-based rock quartet Kings & Queens and local shiny popsters Persephone's Bees open, and DJ Skip and Shindog of popular SF club night "New Wave City" spin nostalgia-inducing '80s tunes.

  • 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.'"
