Sizzle & Fizzle: Highs and Lows from the Last Week in S.F. Music 

Wednesday, Jan 9 2013


• Local rocker Ty Segall has started a new band with guitarist and old pal Charlie Moonheart. Called Fuzz, the outfit's first two songs are slogging proto-metal workouts à la Sabbath that more than live up to their moniker. Catch 'em at the Knockout on Feb. 28.

• A bunch of the world's biggest DJs gathered on a cruise ship for the Holy Ship!! festival, and we can say that it was the most fun thing that ever happened on that boat. The surprise guest was Skrillex, and we danced with him to Skream's prom night-anthem set. Amazing!

• In its first 12 months, low-key S.F. party Push the Feeling has hosted the likes of Les Sins (Toro Y Moi), Magic Touch, James & Evander, and many others. Organizers celebrate one year of bringing dance music to non-raver kids this Friday at Underground SF with a DJ set from the ever-entertaining members of YACHT.


R.I.P. Patti Page, the best-selling female vocalist of the '50s, and a master of country, R&B, and pop. Best known for "The Tennessee Waltz," Page also sang "Mama From the Train," which, despite lyrical appearances, wasn't about matricide.

• Why did Kreayshawn — who once sold out Slim's — play a show at 1015 Folsom for free? Well, the Oakland rapper doesn't have DJ Lil Debbie to pay anymore, and doesn't need security from Rick Ross, either. But the free show was just a social media stunt by the venue.

• So famous local DJ Shadow got thrown off the decks in Miami for playing a set that was "too future." Last week he released the mix that got him booted, and while it's not exactly four-on-the-floor EDM, it's not a mood-killer either. We thought Miamians could appreciate underground hip-hop.

  • 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.'"
