The She's @ Rickshaw Stop

Think back to what you were doing with your after-school time when you were in 7th grade. Chances are, whatever it was, you are no longer spending your free time doing it. Not so for The She's. This all-girl band was formed when the girls, all best friends since kindergarten, were 12 years old, and they're still making music to this day. They started booking tours and playing shows in high school and released their debut album Then It Starts To Feel Like Summer when they were ages 15 and 16. The band's sound is a mix between The Donnas, The Beach Boys, and Girls, which makes sense given the young punk sensibilities and proximity to the ocean. It's been a few years since they've released anything new, but this inertia is understandable: The gals just turned 21. They've got a lot going on in their lives — and a lot of new privileges, to boot.

  • 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.'"
