MP3 of the Day: Adele

Posted By on Fri, May 16, 2008 at 6:12 AM


19-year old Brit singer Adele started out on the pub circuit and graduated to singing in venues with fewer pints dropped on the carpet. She honed her husky delivery at the Brit School, which was home to some other ladies with similar singing styles: Amy Winehouse and Kate Nash, to name a few. Only unlike Winehouse, Adele hasn’t built a rep on boozing. She’s hit the British charts singing breezy numbers that commit her crushes to song. Plan for a romantic night of smoky pop when Adele plays Bimbo’s on Thursday, May 22.

But first, a little taste of those pipes: Adele’s cover of the Strokes’ hit “Last Night,” done teenage lounge diva style. – 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.'"
