Mogging for the Camera 

Wednesday, Sep 3 2008

Many have heard guitar-heavy instrumental band Mogwai without knowing it. By the time the Scots had released their soaring 2006 album Mr. Beast, their tunes had repeatedly blasted through CSI: Miami and wafted through Sex and the City. With their recent sixth album, The Hawk Is Howling, these indie faves faced the unenviable task of topping the absurdly good Beast. Judging from new tracks like the rugged guitar march "The Sun Smells Too Loud," they've come close. Opening this week's show is the charmingly named psychedelic noise/drone duo Fuck Buttons, whose intense debut Street Horrrsing will likely find little play on television soundtracks.

  • 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.'"
