We Salute You 

Wednesday, Apr 15 2009
If you’ve ever wondered what Poulenc’s organ concerto might sound like parsed through metal guitar riffs, spiraling synths, and hard rock drums, Davies After Hours is the place to find out. Last month, the S.F. Symphony launched a monthly series of free postconcert parties to give music lovers a chance to hang out after a mainstage performance in a more intimate, musically eclectic setting. In March, hundreds crowded the venue’s Second Tier Lobby (following a memorable concert of orchestral works by Kodaly, Bloch, and Brahms) to sip cocktails, take in city views, and listen to the innovative sounds of experimental cellist Alex Kelly and the Mark Growden Sextet. Kelly and his cohorts riffed brilliantly on some of the works performed earlier that evening. Tonight’s event promises to be similarly inspiring: Featuring guitarist and singer Neal Walter with symphony members Bill Ritchen, Christina King, and Raymond Froehlich, power rock/jazz group NTL’s performance includes palate-titillating reinterpretations of the evening’s concert repertoire, including works by Bizet, Vaughan Williams, and Poulenc.

  • 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.'"
