Free Corporate Booze Show with Thee Oh Sees This Thursday

Thee Oh Sees
  • Thee Oh Sees

How to make your brand of alcohol cool, in four easy steps:

- Invent witty slogan for your brand of booze. ("Shredding bagpipes since 1745," etc.)

- Find out what well-known but still sorta underground musical artist(s) the 21-35 crowd in your target market likes.

- Book said artist(s) for a show at a local venue

- Grant free entrance to patrons while getting them to look at your brand/logo/slogan.

- (Repeat if necessary).

It's worked for Sailor Jerry -- several times. Hell, it's even worked for Vitamin Water. And now it'll probably work for Drambuie, the Scottish liqueur brand that's putting on a free show with Thee Oh Sees this Thursday night.

What's Drambuie? It's a crucial element in a rusty nail, that's what. Anything else you want to know about the stuff can doubtless be learned at Brick and Mortar Music Hall this Thursday evening, where local messy rock misfits Thee Oh Sees will perform. It's all free -- if you RSVP here.

  • 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.'"
