Lagwagon: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Dec 14 2011

The Bay Area was the center of the mid-'90s punk explosion. Not only did we birth the big three — Green Day, Rancid, NOFX — but San Francisco's Fat Wreck Chords gave the world some of the brightest and best that pop-punk had to offer. This includes, of course, the local heroes of Lagwagon, who will be celebrating the release of a box set (featuring everything the band has ever recorded — praise be!) onstage this week. And, as anyone who's ever caught Lagwagon's previous performances at Slim's will tell you, it's always a party, and it's usually sold out — so make sure you get your tickets in advance.

  • 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.'"
