Quinn DeVeaux: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Oct 30 2013

Woe to those who've no room in their souls for soul — the old-school, good-feelin'-bad kind of music in which San Francisco's Quinn DeVeaux specializes. His songs come across like a '63 T-Bird gliding down the street: big, resplendent, and proudly of another time. DeVeaux's studio toils of late have produced not one but two new albums: Originals, an energetic set of songs penned for his band, the Blue Beat Review; and Late Night Drive, a more subdued collection on which DeVeaux handles the singing and most of the accompaniment himself. He'll celebrate both this Saturday, a few days before their release, with a few like-minded local friends at Great American Music Hall. Anyone with even the merest taste for swinging old-time American R&B should find a good time.

  • 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.'"
