Weekend: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Sep 11 2013

Oakland emigrants Weekend, now off plying their jangly wares in Brooklyn, return to the Bay Area for what has already been touted, admittedly by a PR agency, as "one of the louder and more intense shows you'll see this fall." Judging by the finely tempered rattle and hum of their excellent second LP, Jinx, which came out in July, it should be one of the better ones too — all the more so when you throw in Chicago retro-visionaries Disappears, whose elegantly clamorous new album, Era, distills the best parts of 1980s fetishism into a package worthy of people who lived through it the first time. Wymond Miles, attentively coiffed lead guitarist of San Francisco's own the Fresh & Onlys, rounds out the bill.

    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.'"
