What To Do? Wednesday's Pick: Japanther at Hemlock Tavern

Posted By on Wed, Apr 28, 2010 at 9:07 AM


If you're in the mood for a sweaty dance party, Japanther's romping about at the Hemlock tonight, playing pepped-up hooks off their new album Rock 'n' Roll Ice Cream. Gone is the experimental racket of yore as the Brooklyn rockers have moved in favor of more pop-punk singalongs and simple drums. Catchy-as-hell chants commanded through telephone mics and speedy tempos remain. The Reaction, Dirty Marquee, and Street Eaters also play. (9 p.m., $7)

  • 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.'"
