Radio Play 

Wednesday, Nov 7 2007
Been itching to check out local acts that have been sopping up local ink while simultaneously supporting UC Berkeley's beloved free-form radio station? Well, the people behind tonight's KALX 45th Anniversary Show definitely have you in mind. The show opens with the folkstortion-tinged drone-pop of Greg Ashley. Whether solo or with his allegedly defunct combo the Gris Gris, Ashley wraps the druggy feedback chug of Spacemen 3 around a memorable melody better than nearly anyone since the heyday of the Brian Jonestown Massacre. Cute-core, cuddly Casiotone-slingers Social Studies provide angular disco catchiness to the proceedings, leaving the rest of the night for the booty-shaking set with performances by Chow Nasty and Sugar and Gold. The former's horny, cornball funk is the stuff of legend, and has been found everywhere from basement shows to gigs with MC Hammer and Cameo. Sugar and Gold, on the other hand, kind of sounds like Cameo; its upbeat, slippery soul blend should set the right note for year 45.

DJ Yoni Wolf starts the show.
Thu., Nov. 8, 8:30 p.m., 2007

  • 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.'"
