Seapony: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Feb 6 2013

At one time, the terms "pop," "sweet," and "dissonance" were totally incompatible — how could you enjoy all of 'em at the same time in the same song? Seattle-spawned Seapony routinely makes an art of that feat. Inspired by the rough-hewn tunefulness of the U.K.'s C86 bands — including the Pastels and Talulah Gosh — along with American indie rockers Velocity Girl, Seapony spin panoramas of dreamy, love-struck melodies wrapped in blankets of bittersweet, fuzzed-out bliss 'n' mystery. This show is lent savor by opener Rose Melberg, formerly of Tiger Trap and the Softies, two combos that helped define American indie-pop in the '90s.

  • 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.'"
