Porch: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jun 5 2013

Along with mainstay bassist Les Claypool and drummer Jay Lane, guitarist Todd Huth was a formative member of Bay Area favorites Primus. Besides writing the guitar melodies for the group's earliest (and best) material, Huth wrote dissonant, jagged lines that've been ably followed by his replacement Larry LaLonde for more than two decades. Though he has worked sporadically with Claypool since leaving Primus in the late 1980s, Huth recently revived his own noisy power trio Porch. With the aid of Today Is the Day bassist Christopher Frey and Brookhaven drummer Michael Jacobs, Porch pounds out a moody, malevolent fury whose latest release, Givin Up, echoes the metallic skronk of Unsane and Shellac. The dreams of the '90s will be alive at Thee Parkside Friday for this show with slide-rule punk heroes Victims Family, and Brubaker (a supergroup featuring members of VF, long defunct S.F. favorites Walrus, and Sacramento heavyweights Kai Kln).

  • 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.'"
