"Secret" Deerhunter Show Wednesday at Rickshaw Stop

  • Actually from ATL: Deerhunter

Noise Pop week is once again upon us, and Rickshaw Stop  talent buyer Dan Strachota has a secret he just can't keep under wraps any longer: a free, all-ages show Wednesday night by "two big-name NYC noise pop bands" (though one is originally from Atlanta). One of those bands happens to be Deerhunter; the other, on their maiden SF voyage, is The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. As Strachota gushes, The Pains sound like "killer early MBV/JAMC fuzz," and if those acronyms mean anything to you, you'll want in on this secret.

The show is being presented to fans gratis by MySpace, and as Strachota notes, tickets will be given away on a first come, first served basis. That means get there early, and be prepared to wait in line for a few hours.

  • 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.'"
