Minus The Bear at GAMH 

Wednesday, Nov 18 2015

Seattle's Minus The Bear hasn't released an album of entirely new material since 2012's Infinity Overhead. It also lost its drummer earlier this year, so you might be surpised to find the band on tour. But the reason the band is on the road again is simple: People frickin' love 'em. The proof, as always, is in the ticket sales (this is sold out already). New material? Pssh. Minus The Bear doesn't even need it — this is the 10-year anniversary of the Menos el Oso album, goddammit. Of course it doesn't hurt that one of the other bands on the bill is Murder By Death. The Bloomington, Ind. quintet is always compulsory viewing live, thanks to genre-defying dark material, an intense live delivery and, yes, that mesmerizing cello. If you managed to get tickets on time: congratulations. This is going to be a good one.

    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.'"
