Graveyard: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Feb 13 2013

Two hard-hitting bands armed with distinct styles unleash a ferocious combo at Slim's this weekend. Swedish retro-psych heroes Graveyard pick up where the band's stellar 2011 breakout, Hisingen Blues, left off on their latest Nuclear Blast salvo, Lights Out. While expanding their palette to embrace horn-fueled freakout (on "The Suits, The Law & The Uniforms") and the smoldering, Fender Rhodes-laced coda of "20/20 (Tunnel Vision)," the band still deals out ample Zeppelin- and Cream-inspired boogie rawk. SoCal support trio The Shrine looks back at '70s sounds through a Black Flag prism, bringing a hardcore fury to the boozy skater anthems of their Tee Pee debut, Primitive Blast, and owing a debt to late, lamented Oakland wrecking crew Annihilation Time.

  • 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.'"
