Better Than: A hot toddy in front of the hearth on a rainy night

If you're going to leave the house to do anything on a shitty night

when the clouds are pissing rain, never fully committing to a storm, it

might as well be to soak in some country music in a dark room lit with

red lights. A.A. Bondy plays mournful, pretty music that evokes

portentous landscapes. He writes sad songs, but it's not breakup material.

Bondy

is currently six stops deep into a tour following the release of his

second album, 2009's When the Devil's Loose, and he performed that country music with a pound of reverb under the red lights at

Cafe Du Nord last night.

  • 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.'"
