All Souled Out: Soulive
  • All Souled Out: Soulive
There aren't too many contemporary soul/R&B outfits with the grit of late 60s/early70s acts, but in that admittedly small number, you'd have to place Soulive high up on the totem pole. After ten years as a band, with ten albums on six labels (including Blue Note and Stax), Soulive is still going strong. Having recently returned to their roots--soulful, funky instrumentals--with their latest album Up Here, brothers Alan and Neal Evans and guitarist Eric Krasno (joined in their live sets by the Shady Horns), Soulive's anniversary celebrations at both Yoshis locations this week look to be something special. This Tuesday and Wednesday they play Oakland with ex-James Brown trombone player/bandleader Fred Wesley; Thursday and Friday sees them in San Francisco with trumpeter Roy Hargrove. What's a soul/funk disciple to do? Check out both configurations, if possible.

  • 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.'"
