Merry Flippin' Christmas Variety Show: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Dec 18 2013

Not everyone can get away for the Holidaze, so if you're in town for Christmas week there's an audio-buffet awaiting, served up by some primo Bay Area talent. Your beloved Amnesia hosts the lonesome, Appalachian-tinged warbling of Paula Frazer (Tarnation); the silky '70s-influenced retro-pop of Bart Davenport (Loved Ones, Honeycut); Sonny & The Sunsets' witty, arty garage-pop; Paul Costuros & Matt Shapiro of the self-explanatory Saturday Night Soul Party; Heidi Alexander of the Sandwitches (psych-glazed roots-rock); and more. They'll either celebrate the holiday, or chase out the holiday blues, your choice.

    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.'"
