White Mystery: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Apr 17 2013

It's 4/20 on Saturday, so time for some real talk: Your house is a boring place to be stoned, and Hippie Hill will be crowded and same-y. Of course there is no lack of musicians vying for your reddened eyes, but few events seem as tailor-made to the day's central activity as the Psychedelic Meltdown. It's basically a mini-festival of psychedelic-leaning garage-rock bands, plus a release party for Chicago duo White Mystery, who deals in delirious, skuzzy, basement-friendly hijinx. The lineup is stacked with fun local outfits like Wrong Words, Warm Soda, and Burnt Ones, and the party runs all afternoon and evening with drink specials and rock 'n' roll coloring books. You probably want to get there a little early, though: The music starts right at 4:20.

  • 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.'"
