You, Gene

Eugene Robinson is, among many other things, the American-man version of P.J. Harvey — where she's eccentric and howling about what's been done to her, he's menacing and howling about what he'll do to you. The iconic frontman of art-metal band Oxbow is also a champion Sanshou and Submission Fighting competitor and the author of a book called FIGHT: everything you ever wanted to know about ass-kicking but were afraid you'd get your ass kicked for asking. He's famous for two things, live: physically "subduing" hecklers, and disrobing. If you have a better nominee for Most Interesting Person in San Francisco This Quarter, then please, please let us know. Tonight he appears as a special guest with Generalissimo, Pegataur, and Nero Order. It's not known exactly what he plans to do onstage: Read? Fight? Sing? Strip?

Generalissimo, Pegataur, and Nero Order share the stage with Eugene Robinson.

  • 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.'"
