It may not be a household name like the Clash (or even Crass), but to streetpunx with ratty hair and black denim uniforms, Amebix is the shit. These British anarchist thrashers rank among the originators of the crusty punk genre — that filthy, fast, blast-force meshing of punk and metal, with lyrics inspired by far-left politics — and they're coming to S.F. for a rare reunion appearance on Sunday, Jan. 25, 2009. This apparently pertains to Alternative Tentacles Records' new compilation of Amebix tracks recorded for Flux of Pink Indians' Spiderleg label back in the '80s. For more info about these leathery ol' metallopunx, try checking out their profile page (or the comp's own dedicated page) at the AT website. Oh, and tix for that Great American Music Hall show'll set you back $16, kids. Spart spanging ASAP! — J. Graham

  • 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.'"
