Open Letter to Magnetic Fields Audience

Posted By on Mon, Mar 3, 2008 at 2:35 PM


While the crowd at Friday's Magnetic Fields show wasn't half as bad as the one described in this New York blog item "An Open Letter to the Audience from Last Night’s Magnetic Fields Show at Town Hall," I still had to laugh every time I thought of the line, 'You don’t see me turning to my friends and stage-whispering “I remember this song from when I listened to it.'” A solid, snarky takedown of over-anxious crowds (and the reason I can't sit through an Arcade Fire show). -- Jennifer Maerz

  • 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.'"
