Playing Music Backwards 

Wednesday, May 25 2011
Normally, people make a record and then go out and play the songs from that record. It’s a fine way to do things, but now that we think about it, why don’t people do it the other way around sometimes, the way Mark Growden and Myles Boisen are? Set to record a new album in New Orleans next month, provided it’s still there after the Mississippi has its way (too soon?), the pair are debuting the songs here in San Francisco beforehand. Why not? Growden is a talented multi-instrumentalist and genre-hopper who intends to play a lot of saxophone this time around; Boisen plays guitar, and the rest of the musicians are in New Orleans. An exhibit of Growden’s art is also on display.

  • 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.'"
