Posted By on Thu, Jun 7, 2007 at 8:30 AM

Folky punk: Mason Jennings, 8pm at Bimbo's 365 Club w/ Ferraby Lionheart

"Folk, in the hippie sense, is probably a limiting designation for Jennings, whose acoustic-based rock songs strive to incorporate an amalgam of influences including punk, rural blues, Appalachian balladry, hip hop, north Indian sarod music, and, recently, a splash of roots reggae." --City Pages

Folky Acoustic Indie Fun: Flash Hawk Parlor Ensemble, 8pm at Cafe Du Nord

"Most people know Chris Funk as a Decemberist. (He's the one who runs around onstage with giant fake whale jaws.) But his NoPo neighbors know him as a jovial fellow who enjoys lazy-day porch-sittin' and string-pickin'. And it was just such recreational activities that led to a new Funk-led project, Flash Hawk Parlor Ensemble, which he describes as 'all instrumental sorta acid folk music, sorta.'" --Willamette Week

Punky Punk Punk: Dirkfest: Tribute to the life of Dirk Dirksen, 8pm at Slim's

From SFGate

Mr. Dirksen, who called himself "the pope of punk," was known for peppering audiences and performers alike with abuse and insults.

"I'm sorry to see you're that easily pleased," he told the crowd at the end of one band's performance. "You should try and show some intelligence and sophistication and not just accept any slop that's thrown in your trough."

He turned to the musicians, who were trying to stalk off the stage, thinking he was not going to let the band have an encore.

"I'll give you one," he said, "but only because the next group is an absolute pimple in the armpit of progress. Now everybody, please pay attention because it's time to play 'People Are Stupid.'

Don't like our picks? Feedback to All Shook Down, and please con the nuns into letting you rent films from the public library in the 5th grade and running them on an old projector. 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.'"
