Plugged in -- ASD's music picks for Wednesday, June 6

Posted By on Wed, Jun 6, 2007 at 8:30 AM

Tangerine trees and marmalade skies: Bryan Scary & the Shredding Tears, 9pm, with My Revolver at Elbo Room. $7. "The Shredding Tears (Black & Greene), the debut album from 23-year-old auteur Bryan Scary, succeeds either because of its laser-accurate reproduction of old Beatles, Kinks, and Bowie or despite it, I'm not sure. It feels a little cheap to laud Scary, who did everything except play drums here, for being a great mimic -- with its deft melodies, expert arrangements, and arch campiness, The Shredding Tears is a pleasurable ride even if the scenery is a little too familiar." --Chicago Reader

Blooze: Johnny Winter, 8pm at The Independent. $25.

"It's a joy that Johnny Winter has been brought among us, however irritating the hypes that accompany him. All the bullshit becomes meaningless now, precisely because the forced enthusiasm of flacks and ad copy is so totally antithetical to the vibrantly instinctive eruption of his talent." --Lester Bangs

Don't like our picks? Feedback to All Shook Down, and please sheath your letter in a film of dizzying, at times hallucinatory language. Don't be afraid to collapse into arbitrary transitions and digressions. Thank you.

  • 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.'"
