They Wanna Touch You 

Wednesday, Feb 25 2009
Local all-woman band Dolorata grew from the roots of the Shelley Doty X-tet, the Hail Marys, and 4 Non Blondes, so, yeah, it's a rock band. Or a rawk band, maybe. Whatever; your devil horns are destined for the air. Listening to the arena sound of "You Gotta Want It," for example, we think of Joan Jett, the Donnas, and definitely L7, but like any self-respecting rock band, Dolorata considers its main influence to be Led Zeppelin. And like Led Zeppelin, all members of this group are way overqualified for bar gigging, but they wouldn't have it any other way. Thundering drums, screamy guitar riffs, and a violin wielded like Jethro Tull's flute — we already told you where your devil horns are headed.

  • 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.'"
