Serj Tankian: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Sep 19 2012

Memorable rock 'n' roll vocalists don't come much more distinctive than warbling Armenian-American super-talent Serj Tankian. His unabashedly political and unusually articulate lyrics helped make System of a Down one of the most innovative and exciting rock bands of the last decade. And while he's still best known as SOAD's frontman, the engaging music Tankian has been making solo since 2007 has allowed him the space to stretch out into other genres, and indulge in an even more eclectic range of styles. Expect heavy guitars, deep brain stimulation, and plenty of aural wonder.

    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.'"
