Pennywise: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Feb 27 2013

The exit of original Pennywise vocalist Jim Lindberg in 2009 devastated many a skate-punk fan. But it was the ensuing public feud between Lindberg and guitarist Fletcher Dragge that made it clear that future reconciliation would be impossible. Or so we thought. Ex-Ignite frontman Zoli Téglás did a fine job filling Lindberg's shoes the last few years, but in January anti-establishment punkers everywhere were stunned and elated to see Lindberg rejoin Pennywise for the band's 25th anniversary. This week sees Pennywise's first S.F. show since reuniting. The fact that fellow Orange County old-schoolers Death by Stereo and local pop-punk legends Lagwagon are also on the bill makes it even more of a must-see. Expect nostalgia — and circle pits.

    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.'"
