Watch Neon Indian's Spider-iffic New Video, See 'Em in North Beach on Sunday

Posted By on Tue, Jul 20, 2010 at 10:05 AM

No word yet on whether Neon Indian's Alan Palomo will add the giant spider from this funky new stop-motion video for "6669 (I Don't Know if You Know)" to his live show for Sunday's performance at the All Shook Down Festival. But while we sort that out, enjoy, here, the creation myth of said spider, and note that Palomo is still putting out videos for an (admittedly great) album (Psychic Chasms) that came out last year. That's a marvel, not a complaint -- watching the iron spider enter the world to the metallic bleeps of this tidy, groove-driven NI track is all pleasure. Unless, of course, you're an arachnophobe. But even if eight-legged, ten-eyed, giant black crawly things generally give you the wrong kind of goosebumps, you have to admit that this fake one is sort of cute. Buy him a beer Sunday and we bet he won't bite.

  • 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.'"
