We don't really know what's going on here, either.
  • We don't really know what's going on here, either.

Here is a list of things you will see in the new music video for Cass McCombs' "Big Wheel," a droning trucker-rock tune from his excellent new album of almost the same name:

- Bloody fingers

- San Francisco City Hall

- Some green bug

- A dog and its person

- Clips of television people with their faces blanked out

- A plane flying shakily

- Cheesy 1980s VHS video effects

- Dancers or actors performing in a park

- Big words like "nothing," "freedom," and "heart."

But, you know, listing what is in this video really isn't going to help us, or you, understand the meaning of these images as they flash quickly by. You will just have to watch it:

  • 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.'"
