The Fratellis, The Noisettes, The Queers -- ASD's live music picks for Thursday June 14

Posted By on Thu, Jun 14, 2007 at 7:00 AM

The Fratellis, 8pm at The Fillmore. $18.

"A stripped down, cartoon-version of a band – like the last bit of withered doner on a skewered kebab-spit at 4am on a Sunday morning." --Drowned In Sound

The Noisettes, 7pm at Amoeba, SF (free), and then 8pm at Pop Scene. $10.

"Too often vocalists opt for a lily-livered delivery on their recordings which is particularly frustrating when the act in question is a juggernaut-esque live act. Thankfully, Noisettes singer/bassist Shingai despatches any such doubts about their second single with a chocolate rich, forceful vocal that propels 'Scratch Your Name' from the realm of 'decent follow-up effort' up into the 'actually rather ace' bracket." --Drowned In Sound

The Queers, 8:30pm at Bottom of the Hill. $12.

"The Queers are a punk rock band from New Hampshire, formed in 1982. Singer/Guitarist/Songwriter Joe King has been the principal member of the group, with a vast number of musicians cycling in and out of the band over the years. Supposedly, the band name 'Queers' was used simply to poke fun at what he called the "Art Fag" community in NH. That same brand of humor and inanity has become a staple of The Queers music, who have produced songs such as "Can't Stop Farting", "Born To Do Dishes", and "I Can't Get Invited To The Prom" in their own Ramones-esque style. While some punk rock bands attempt to use their music to impart a social or political message, King has made it clear that The Queers exist simply to play punk rock for the fun of it." --Punknews

  • 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.'"
