Classic San Francisco punks Flipper will show the young 'uns how it was done, Bay Area style, when the old school act drops a "Sex Bomb" on the Warped Tour this summer. The band has been added to the first three dates of the touring punk bash, and they've added Rachel Thoele on bass for those shows and the tour planned for this summer.

In more immediate news, much of Flipper's out of print material is making its way back into record (and digital) stores. Vinyl editions of Generic Flipper, Gone Fishin', Public Flipper Limited, and Sex Bomb Baby! are out at the end of this month, on the heels of the CD re-releases that came out at the end of last year.

But to prove they're not stuck in the past, Flipper will also release a new record in May--a twin batch of concept albums called Love (new studio record) and Fight (new live record) that feature Nirvana's Krist Novoselic on bass.

  • 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.'"
