A key member of some of the Bay Area’s most exciting improvisational ensembles, pianist/accordionist Rob Reich s known for keeping company with adventurous players eager to explore new sonic territory. Looking to meet the needs of the Bay Area’s thriving swing dance scene, he launched Swings Left, a band that puts its own spin on the classic swing era sound of the late 1930s. Starting with a book of hits by Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Artie Shaw, the sextet has evolved into a vehicle for Reich’s beautiful crafted originals that combine cool sonorities with hot rhythms.

  • 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.'"
