Soulive: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Dec 8 2010

Buffalo's Soulive (Alan Evans, Neal Evans, and Eric Krasno) is the rare group that found prominence in both the jazz world — via work with Blue Note, Concord, Velour, and Stax — and in hip-hop circles, via remix collections and collaborations with rappers such as the Beatnuts, J-Live, and Chali 2na. In San Francisco, the trio will be joined onstage by friend and collaborator Karl Denson, the San Diego saxophonist and singer known for his work with the Greyboy Allstars and his own Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, for a live performance of career highlights plus covers of whatever strikes their fancy. At recent gigs, that meant stellar versions of songs like "Joy and Pain" by Maze and "Come Together" by the Beatles.

  • 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.'"
