Track of the Day: Charlie & The Moonhearts

Posted By on Fri, Jul 10, 2009 at 8:40 AM

Friday's as good a morning as any to hear a song about goin' to Arcata, meetin' some kids, dancin' all night, and experiencing "Obliteration." So Cal's Charlie & the Moonhearts play the sorta scrapped up, stripped down garage rawk that encourages such delinquent behavior. Sample their invitation to wipe out the weekend at the band's MySpace page, where you can also check out another tune that I imagine goes over well up in Arcata, "Drop In Drop Out." That one's about the finer points of skipping school, and it's catchy enough to vacate the classrooms--or at least to fill the Hemlock, where the band plays tonight with Ty Segall (dude has another new record out already. It's great. Just like the last one...and the next one I imagine).

  • 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.'"
