More Personalities Mean More Tori to Love 


Tori Amos is now on tour supporting her best CD in years. On American Doll Posse, Amos assumes the roles of a quartet of disparate women: indignant politico photographer Isabel, wounded soul-seeker Clyde, fierce rubber enthusiast Pip, and glitzy sensualist Santa. Together, they sing the album's 23 songs. In addition to Amos' solo piano performance and a set with her band, the two-and-a-half-hour show includes appearances by Posse's protagonists. She takes the stage dressed in character. But this really isn't groundbreaking territory for Amos, who, after her autobiographical 1992 debut, Little Earthquakes, began channeling different characters to sing her increasingly oblique songs. Read more about American Doll Posse in an interview with Amos here. — D.X. Ferris

  • 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.'"
