Ty Segall @ The Fillmore

It's hard to categorize, let alone describe Ty Segall. His discography is that diverse. He seems to switch genres from one track to the next, and the fact that he releases new music as often as Donald Trump offends someone — meaning: All the fucking time — makes defining him even harder. Perhaps the best way to sum up this blonde 28-year-old is to say that his production sounds like the love child of John Lennon and Dan Auerbach (lead singer of the Black Keys), with an angsty punk groaning the vocals. During his solo career, Segall has released eight studio albums, plus multiple EPs and singles. When he's not working on his solo project, he's busy playing in three other bands: Fuzz, Broken Bat, and GØGGS. His latest album, Ty Rex, was released in November, and on Jan. 22, he'll release a follow-up, Emotional Mugger. He and I shared a cigarette together not long ago, which was long enough for him to say he sure as hell doesn't plan on slowing down any time soon. The guy is a musical genius, so if you know what's good for you, you'll check out the multifaceted mastermind that is Ty Segall.

  • 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.'"
