If your leftover Halloween candy has finally run dry and the stuffing and sweet potatoes can't get here fast enough — Happy Fangs, S.F.'s power-punk-pop trio known for its black and white face paint and scary-fun stage antics, have just the thing for you. It’s "Fangsgiving," that's f-a-n-g-s, and it’s almost better than stuffing.

The band, made up guitarist Mike Cobra of King Loses Crown, vocalist Rebecca Gone Bad (Bortman) of My First Earthquake, and drummer Jess G, have been capturing hearts all over the city for the past couple years, including a memorable Bottom of the Hill show on Halloween. This new gem,  a raucous rock anthem for our holiday strife as we try to get through ‘em again — wanting all the delicious food, all the presents, and none of the bills — is the kind of seasonal fanfare we can get behind. Bortman, with her AC/DC inspired femme rock ’n’ roll, belts in a way that's hard to ignore: We pretty much dare to listen without wanting to jump up and down. Give it a listen below. 

The single, paired with “All I Want for Christmas Is Halloween,” which tells us to run around in masks, eat candy, and ditch the holidays altogether, will drop on a 7-inch called Holidaze via Pulse Music this Sunday, Nov. 17; they'll celebrate with a show Friday, Nov. 21 at DNA Lounge. And be on the lookout for their debut LP, Capricorn, in January.

  • 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.'"
