Lovefingers: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Aug 29 2012

If the past decade of music proves anything, it's that the impossible can happen. Case in point: The popular revival of disco in the mid-'00s, where young DJs in big cities began to practice a form of cultural necromancy on that most forbidden of genres. One of those DJs is Lovefingers (aka Andrew Hogge), the Los Angeles native behind the raucous Black Disco parties, the music blog, and the E.S.P. Institute record label. But you might as well throw your preconceived notions of disco out the window — to hear Hogge DJ is to be turned on to a left-field current that incorporates tripped-out jazz-funk, psychedelic krautrock, reggae-tinged garage, and other lost genres from deep in the archives.

  • 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.'"
