Posted By on Sun, Jun 3, 2007 at 2:15 PM

Indiefun: Manchester Orchestra, 8pm at Slim's w/ mewithoutYou, and Piebald $14/$16

"Lavishly moody indie rock that ought to appeal to fans of Death Cab for Cutie, Modest Mouse and Bright Eyes. The 'orchestra' part of the name isn't entirely misleading: Though Hull and his crew stick to traditional rock instrumentation, songs such as 'Where Have You Been?' 'I Can Barely Breathe' and 'Alice and Interiors' are expansive in scope and rich in texture even while remaining lyrically focused on small moments of revelation.." --Rolling Stone

Cinematic grandeur, demonic death metal: Dengue Fever, 8pm w/ Secret Chiefs 3 at the Great American Music Hall $19

"I can't help but enjoy these originative, shape-shifting musicians, especially considering how, live, they've chosen to re-create the wild '60s compilation Cambodia Rocks! in its entirety." --SFWeekly

Hmm: Uncle Monk, 8pm w/ The Whoreshoes at Bottom of the Hill $10

"Uncle Monk is an alt-country punk-bluegrass duo featuring Tommy Ramone on vocals, mandolin, guitar, banjo and dobro, and Claudia Tienan on vocals, guitar and bass. Uncle Monk's music is rooted in old-time and bluegrass influences. To this mix they have added twangy guitar textures to create a sound with a new sensibility. Tommy Ramone began his musical career as Tom Erdelyi an engineer at the Record Plant recording studios. In the musical doldrums of the 70's he, along with the great Johnny, Joey and Dee Dee Ramone, formed the rock group Ramones and participated in the birth of New Wave, Punk Rock, and Alternative music."

  • 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.'"
