Shannon & the Clams: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Feb 20 2013

Amoeba Music, Bottom of the Hill, KUSF, KFJC, Rite Spot — Ursula Rodriguez's employment history is a laundry list of vital San Francisco music institutions.

In appreciation of her contribution to San Francisco's music scene, a showcase of local acts will perform for her benefit. Idiosyncratic Oakland pop trio Shannon & the Clams are headlining, but openers The Mallard and Blasted Canyons could both vie for the slot with their respective psychedelic terror-rock and ferocious synth-punk.

    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.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
