Sweet and Hot 

Wednesday, Apr 13 2011
Laura Weinbach is tiny. She’s not tall and not wide, and her voice is very high. She’s pretty, and she wears sweet little dresses. In short, she doesn’t look like a rock star. We suspect people of sometimes failing to take her seriously — at first. Because as soon as Laura Weinbach starts to play, everyone within earshot immediately revises their previous opinions of her, from tiny cutie to big roaring genius. Tonight Weinbach’s band, Foxtails Brigade, celebrates its first record on Antenna Farm, The Bread and the Bait, full of her complicated compositions that fuse Joanna Newsom’s fairytale-soundtrack style, Nellie McKay’s perfect diction, and Emily Jane White’s quiet-literary-opera power. She’s accompanied by Anton Patzner (of Bright Eyes and Judgement Day) and his Parisian-jazz violin; he also provides harmony vocals, and that’s no small feat. Tonight’s party includes comedy by Weinbach’s brother, Brent, and Moshe Kasher, music by Rachel Fannan, and a fashion show featuring the work of Nicole Eymard, Verriers & Sako, and Zoe Hong.

  • 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.'"
