The Dwarves: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jul 9 2014

On the surface, the Dwarves and the Queers have little in common, aside from having two of the most memorable band names in punk. It's hard to see this lineup without immediately wondering how the Queers' lovingly juvenile, three-chord songs about the ladies are going to sound rubbing up against the Dwarves' anarchic and unhinged rock 'n' roll. (Consider the fact that the Queers were sweetly singing "Yummy, yummy, punk rock girls" when the Dwarves were putting naked women in ski masks on their record covers and growling about irresistible 13-year-old girls named Demonica.) Truthfully though, this bill makes more sense than it might seem: Both these bands know how to write killer choruses, both have their roots firmly in punk rock provocation, and both have reputations for being girl-crazy. And of course, nothing involving the Dwarves ever has to make sense.

  • 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.'"
