X Marks the Spot 

Wednesday, Oct 28 2009
Someone, please make a movie based on Exene Cervenka’s life. The protagonist (played by whoever the next pre-diet Christina Ricci is) flees Florida, invents punk rock, counts among her conquests Viggo Mortensen and John Doe, becomes a fashion icon, invents alt-country, invents spoken-word poetry, releases a solo dark-folk record, develops multiple sclerosis, and lives happily ever after. All of the above is exaggerated but factual; tonight, she sings for you, just for you, from that dark-folk record, Somewhere Gone. Dress cool, act smart, and maybe you can legitimately pretend to be an extra in this epic tale of a great American.

  • 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.'"
