Rank/Xerox: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jan 11 2012

Local post-punk trio Rank/Xerox is continuing its upward trajectory: The band's neurotic debut album elicited universally positive reviews and topped many punk-focused 2011 year-end lists, so its upcoming appearance at Fivepoints Arthouse will be important for this local talent. But with The Shoppers as support, it will likely be landmark. Based in Syracuse, The Shoppers received significant praise for last year's Silver Year, which boasts straight-ahead punk glazed with white noise. With Rank/Xerox's deviant nervousness and The Shoppers' damaged attack, expect a rare showcase of innovative punk from both coasts.

    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.'"
