Watch Sonny & the Sunsets Play 'Don't Act Dumb' On a Chicago Railroad Track

Posted By on Fri, Aug 6, 2010 at 10:11 AM

Big blue Chicago skies, skyline in the background, and the railroad yards that make the great midwestern city famous -- an appropriate setting for the vintage sound of San Francisco's Sonny & the Sunsets. Watch Sonny Smith and the rest of his band scrape out "Don't Act Dumb" on maracas and battery-powered amps, courtesy of Pitchfork and San Francisco's Yours Truly, and enjoy how much they look like a bunch of musical vagabonds.

  • 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.'"
