French Miami - JEFF VALLEE

​French Miami isn't a real place, but if it were, well, we'd hafta check it out. Pretty much like next Thursday, March 11, when the San Francisco alt-psych trio named after a sunny, cheese-filled land that doesn't exist will play at Milk. For free.

But who wouldn't want to go to French Miami? To lose oneself in their careening, explosive post-punk? To jet through the warm, dreamily-dreary climax of "SFO" after its meandering, brittle buildup? To amble along to "Multi-Caliber Rifles"' jittery rhythms?

We were sold even before we saw the exploding $1 PBR-all-night sign. And with White Cloud and Silian Rail playing, too, we're downright stoked. Thursday's shindig is being thrown by Kevin Meenan, the chap behind Epicsauce, an upstart music blog and show list you've probably seen us link to a few times. It's the first of what Meenan plans to be a semi-weekly series at Milk. He's got some exciting stuff brewing for the future -- like a DJ set by Neon Indian -- but for next week, a free trip to French Miami sounds like like a perfect sonic vacation to us.

  • 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.'"
