The Zeros 

Wednesday, Jul 15 2009

There's nothing wrong with being called the "Hispanic Ramones." But the Zeros' bio seems too focused on the acts they sound like, or those they played with on legendary bills such as the Germs' debut at the Orpheus and the "St. Patrick's Day Massacre" show with X and the Go-Gos. The band is celebrating its 30th anniversary with a handful of shows that include original members Javier Escovedo and Robert Lopez (yes, El Vez). The group's finer moments — "Wimp," "Beat Your Heart Out," and "Wild Weekend" — alone should prove why the Zeros are a point of reference in and of themselves.

  • 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.'"
