Show Preview: Dirty Projectors 

Wednesday, Sep 22 2010

If you've yet to experience Brooklyn sextet Dirty Projectors live, just know this: They're the kind of musical mavericks the Queen of Kook, Björk, performs with in New York bookstores; they once collaborated with that other eccentric legend, David Byrne; and one of their seven albums is entirely dedicated to reinterpreting Black Flag's Damaged (in a manner that sounds absolutely nothing like Black Flag). Embracing both folksy aesthetics and arthouse experimentalism, their far-reaching vision encompasses so many musical genres and eras that they are impossible to classify. On Sept. 28, they're releasing an expanded edition of last year's masterful album, Bitte Orca.

  • 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.'"
