The new span of the Bay Bridge may be an obvious setting for local music videos, but leave it to folk-rocker-with-a-conscience Thao Ngyuen to fete the bridge as well as we've yet seen. This new clip for the jazzy stomper "Feeling Kind" has Nugyen and Co. grooving all up and down the eastern span's pedestrian walkway, interspersed with lovely footage of the Bay and Treasure Island to boot. It helps that, like most of the songs on Thao's latest album, "Feeling Kind" is excellent -- a bittersweet New Orleans-y blues about hitting pause on your modern worries, or at least trying to. The clip premiered on Stereogum today, but you can watch it here:

Thao and the Get Down Stay Down play S.F. next on Feb. 14 (Valentine's Day!) with Sonny and the Sunsets at the Fillmore. See also: * In Praise of Songs That Aren't About Their Singers * Jailed Heart: Thao Nguyen Finds Inspiration in Prison -- @iPORT

  • 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.'"
