Mi Ami in 2008, still a three-piece
  • Mi Ami in 2008, still a three-piece
Back in July, the rather awesome San Francisco then-trio Mi Ami -- which described its sound to us as "ebullient blown-out spaced-out not rock" -- announced that bassist Jacob Long would be leaving the band to spend more time with his family and pursue other endeavors. Remaining members Daniel Martin-McCormick and Damon Palermo said they would reconfigure their sound a bit and continue under the Mi Ami name, and the band played its last show in S.F. as a trio on August 8. We wondered what would happen to the band and its sound. Well, Mi Ami fans, a newly released "Hard Up Practice Tape" (it sounds better than the name sounds) shows off the new two-piece Mi Ami, and it's pretty rad -- still lots of huge bass, a jammy instinct, and plenty of spaced-outness. Check it out, and catch Mi Ami's first show as a duo on October 1 at Li Po Lounge.

  • 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.'"
