The Jean Genies, The Killer Queens Club Recommended

When: Fri., July 4, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: $17-$22

Hang onto yourself, Ziggy Stardust is coming to Sweetwater Music Hall to celebrate the Fourth of July with all you young Americans. The actual David Bowie has long since put away his lizard suit, yet the legacy lives on. The Jean Genies, a local San Francisco Bowie tribute band led by Geoff Ball, has garnered quite a reputation for channeling the Spiders from Mars and faithfully jiving us that we are Voodoo. Joining them are the Killer Queens, an all-girl Queen cover band. Those loud crackles and bright fireworks exploding into the sky were originally meant to symbolize the winning of the war of independence from the British. There has been much glitter painted sexy liberation since then, in part, because of wild and gender-bending rockers hailing from the U.K. To the Yanks and the Brits and a little slink and slither. Independence, in these new Millennium ways, is so very saucy. Bang!

  • 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.'"
