Taking the Starch Out 

Wednesday, Sep 23 2009
Music collective Classical Revolution is a response to the stuffiness in the world of classical music, hence the name. Its members tend to be young, just out of conservatories, and/or people who don’t make their living via music. They perform in bars, cafes, and art galleries, where audiences holler their heads off if someone takes a sweet solo, which is the way it should be. The atmosphere at Classical Revolution’s performances is closer to rock show than recital, although the music is taken hella seriously. Go ahead, tell the cellist to work it. She is, trust us.

Classical Revolution opens for Project.

  • 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.'"
