Quiet Riot 

Wednesday, Dec 24 2008
At the Sunday Night String Stampede, it’s not just the word “stampede” that hollers “I’m gonna feel something!” when it comes to the lineup of Uni and the Ding String Trio, Foxtails Brigade, Definite Articles, and New Pantheon. Foxtails Brigade has that soul-transporting “anytime but now, anywhere but here” quality that accompanies a lot of bands not punching away at the prefab Garage Band beats on their Macs, and it’s such a welcome vacation. The violin and guitar glide and pluck together beautifully, accompanied by Laura Weinbach’s sweet and powerful vocals. Such a flawless cover of “La Vie en Rose”! Some wicked talent is floating around in the Weinbach gene pool — brother Brent is a local favorite on the comedy scene. Foxtails Brigade is who we want to hear when smoothing a lace doily in an English tearoom, and on other auspicious occasions as well — certainly on a Sunday in San Francisco.

  • 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.'"
