Hear 'Em Make Some Noise 

Wednesday, Dec 19 2007
With its calendar packed with rock, electronic, and hip-hop events, SOMA live venue Slim's may not be thought of as the most spiritual place in San Francisco for most of the year. But everything changes when the Oakland Interfaith Gospel Ensemble descends on the joint to perform its annual holiday concert there. It is a compact version of the larger Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, which both fall under the artistic direction of Terrance Kelly, a musician who has worked with Linda Ronstadt. That the Ensemble encompasses different faiths is socially significant. However, its multicultural makeup is the key to its unique sound, which organically blends operatic tones with soul stirrings. Hold on to your joyfully soaring spirits for two Christmas Eve shows.

  • 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.'"
