Metallibash, For Whom the Bay Tolls: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Dec 7 2011

Metallica turns 30 years old this week, and to celebrate, the local heavy metal juggernaut will be performing four intimate shows at the Fillmore — for fan club members only. You casual supporters could hang outside the Fillmore and moan, cry, or try to talk your way inside. But since weeping isn't acceptable behavior for metalheads, you might instead check out two smaller shows that are paying tribute to the lords of Bay Area heavy music with spirited performances of Metallica covers and originals. Metallibash will feature Latvian four-piece Relicseed, L.A.'s Damage, Inc., and a book-signing by rock journalist Lonn Friend. It goes down Thursday, Dec. 8 , at Kimo's (7 p.m., no advance tickets available). And on Friday, Dec. 9, Thee Parkside will host For Whom the Bay Tolls, a party with the Northern California chapter of the Met Club, featuring bands Witchaven, Exmortus, Midnight Chaser, and Tinnitus. 9 p.m., $5.

  • 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.'"
