We "Really" Love Them 

Wednesday, Jan 23 2008
The "Amoeba Art Show #2" features a slew of artists who work at the big ol' record store. The shop's PR department seems to be in overdrive promoting the exhibit through the appropriate outlets, like Craigslist. This seems pretty cool. But our radar always beeps when a large organization hypes its own workers (according to the Web site, they are "ultra-talented, intensely creative employees,") yet fails to name even one of them. Here's the rub: We agree quite heartily with Amoeba PR. The people who buy, sell, and organize music at the Haight Street and Telegraph Ave. stores rule, and we've never been to the one in L.A. (artwork comes from all three stores) but the smart money's on those folks being cool too. And by that we mean they probably have intense creativity and ultra talent, artistically.

  • 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.'"
