Panda Bear: Show Preview 

Wednesday, May 21 2014

It's generally understood that the Bay Area is a forceful creative cultivator, but when, in 2011, Baltimore's Animal Collective blocked out three rehearsal days at the Phoenix Theater in Petaluma to write new material following up its hugely successful album Merriweather Post Pavilion, the result was Centipede Hz, a scattered, flat affair. Panda Bear to the rescue: That same exact week, the Animal Collective member released Tomboy, which continued his reign as the group's most atmospheric harmonist. Never one to look back, expect new material when Panda Bear returns to the Bay Area this week.

  • 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.'"
