Holy Crap 

Wednesday, Sep 22 2010
Men who abuse guitars. Men who scream like sexy monkeys. Men who are completely fucking nuts. The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Thee Oh Sees: What else can you call this show? Two bands dedicated to bad behavior, loud throbbing, and tight pants for everyone — some have called it the year's best party. Two recent rereleases of material from JSBX's lusted-after mid-'90s heyday are in the blog headlights these days, as are the rubberized denim pants Spencer wore at the Pitchfork Music Festival this summer. Thee Oh Sees, as our local garage superhero outfit, is bad and beautiful, evil and effervescent — audiences always flip out to the stomping, weird pop-rock glory.

  • 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.'"
