Plugged in, ASD's music picks for Sunday, June 10 -- Zoyres, Tennessee Three, Ima Robot

Posted By on Sun, Jun 10, 2007 at 8:00 AM

Very wonderfully weird: Zoyres, 9 at the Hemlock. $7.

"Zoyres Eastern European Wild Ferment is an Eastern European hybrid group currently working around the San Francisco Bay Area playing music and promoting their recently released debut cd. They've played at venues such as The Makeout Room, Papa Toby’s Revolution Café, Amnesia, and Hotel Utah. In addition, they’ve performed with artists such as Graham Connah’s Sour Note 7, Zegnotronic Rocket Society, Brass Menagerie, Pickpocket Ensemble, and The Blues Roots among many others."

Not a tribute: Johnny Cash's Legendary Tennessee Three, 9pm at The Independent. $20.

"With that "freight train" guitar sound and a voice so like Cash's, it's spooky, Wootton and drummer W.S. Holland have kept the Tennessee Three (the math gets complicated) together as a tribute to the Man in Black. It's enough to make you take Cash's Personal File off repeat ... at least for a couple of hours." --Kansas City Pitch

Seriously: Ima Robot, 8pm at Slim's. $15.

"When Ima Robot are firing on all cylinders, they whip up a frenzy of keyboard bleeps 'n' bloops, meaty guitar riffs and big funky bass; it boils down to infectious, fancy-pants garage rock. Also working in Ima Robot's favor is the fact that the rhythm section of Meldal-Johnsen and Waronker are studio pros who spent much of the '90s backing up Beck. As left-of-center L.A. rock pedigrees go, Ima Robot's is better than most (if not all)." --PopMatters

  • 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.'"
