Wild Horses 

Wednesday, Oct 15 2008

With the release of her revolutionary debut, Horses, Patti Smith solidified her place in the vibrant music scene of 1970s New York City. From then on, she has displayed talent in many roles; she's a soul sister to the singer, a friend to the author, a peer to the painter, a poet laureate to the punks, a sympathizer to the radical, a muse to modern musicians, and a goddess to her fans. At age 61, Smith is as prolific and inspirational as ever. In addition to being the subject of Steven Sebring's documentary, Dream of Life (which opens in San Francisco this week), she is still touring, bringing her unrivaled live show to town.

  • 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.'"
