No Depression to be revived as a Web zine

Fans of alt country mag No Depression got some good news this week. The publication that consistently covered that genre (as well as the outlying areas of roots music and indie rock) will start publishing again in September. The magazine shut down as a print entity last May, and it won't be killing any trees covering the new Pinetop Perkins album. Instead the editors are trying their hand at a Web zine, hosted at NoDepression.com, which will feature "daily blogs, daily record reviews, daily news reports, feature stories, live reviews, interactive forums, multimedia content, and more," according to the news posted now on the site. To help get things up and running, the editors are offering special "memberships" to the No Depression inner circle, which includes, for the big spenders, a "signed cover-flat of the ND #33 painting of Lucinda Williams by Jon Langford." -- 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.'"
