Nobunny: Show Preview 


Want to entrust your weekend to a sludge of cassette-beholden garage bands hawking their "sleazy art" — especially if they're led by a freak in a bunny mask who makes Jay Reatard look like one of the Shins? Of course you do. For better or worse, Justin Champlin has been making a hissy, lo-fi racket as the character Nobunny for nearly a decade. His cheap, cheaply recorded punk melodies recall things like the Nuggets compilations and Ween. And he's even been a good sport about the indie-subgenre name game no one wants to play. Call him "bubble punk" or "rhythm and screws" if you want — just get out there and mess shit up. Ditto for the remainder of this week's Oakland-dominated Total Trash Fest, which features such other promisingly named carbon monoxide–breathers as Uzi Rash and Personal and the Pizzas.

  • 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.'"
