Sebadoh: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jul 31 2013

When Lou Barlow exited Dinosaur Jr. and formed Sebadoh in 1989, it was impossible to know or predict just how important his new lo-fi project would become. The influence of albums like III, Smash Your Head on the Punk Rock, and Bakesale on indie rock is still palpable today, even though more than two decades have passed since their release. After a mammoth 14-year recording break, Sebadoh released the quite marvelous Secret EP earlier this summer, whetting our appetites for upcoming full-length, Defend Yourself, which hits shelves Sept. 17. At the band's intimate show this week, expect a sneak preview of new material, as well as some noisy old classics.

  • 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.'"
