Win Tickets To See Giraffage This Thursday In Oakland

Posted By on Tue, Nov 4, 2014 at 8:49 AM

GIRAFFAGE IS HOME, AND HE WANTS YOUR EARS.
  • Giraffage is home, and he wants your ears.
It's been a big few years for Giraffage, also known as San Jose native and UC Berkeley graduate Charlie Yin, whose chilled-out brand of sample-heavy bedroom dream pop and R&B remixes have been seducing eardrums and dancefloors since the producer's debut in 2011.

On top of a heady schedule of festivals, he's most recently been touring internationally with Porter Robinson. And head of dropping his new EP, No Reason, Nov. 18 on Fool's Gold, Giraffage teased this future bass track, "Tell Me," late last week.

* Swedish House Mafia Announce San Francisco Stop on Farewell Tour

As we mentioned last week, EDM giant Swedish House Mafia is going on one final world tour before its three members hang up their headphones. The group's final run includes a stop here at San Francisco's Bill Graham Civic Auditorium on Feb. 16, 2012.

Tickets for the last-ever S.F. show go onsale tomorrow at noon -- and will likely sell out very, very quickly. But before they're available for sale, we're giving away one pair of tickets to a lucky All Shook Down reader.

Bob Mould
  • Bob Mould

And now for something a little different: Later this month, the esteemed Noise Pop organization is teaming up with City Arts and Lectures for what sounds to us like a freaking awesome conversation:

Bob Mould interviewed by Shepard Fairey.

Yep, that's the Bob Mould -- most notably of punk legends Hüsker Dü, but also a DJ, writer, gay icon, and San Francisco resident. And that's Shepard Fairey, OBEY creator, artist, and designer of the indelible Obama Hope poster.

They're getting together for a chat at Herbst Theatre on Sept. 20. And we have two tickets to give away to a lucky All Shook Down reader.

Win Tickets to See Dominant Legs This Wednesday at the Rickshaw Stop

We will be so lonely and forlorn if you do not come see us plaaaaay
  • We will be so lonely and forlorn if you do not come see us plaaaaay


San Francisco blogstraordinaire Ears of the Beholder is putting on a show this Wednesday night at the Rickshaw Stop, featuring the post-Tracy Chapman pop jangle of Dominant Legs, the brand new neo-funk stylings of Dirty Ghosts, and the sultry glitch-pop of L.A.'s Superhumanoids.


It's $12 if you buy tickets at the door, $10 if you buy them in advance, and $0 if you win a pair right here by writing a comment below with the most creative short text -- instructive sentence, microstory, haiku, what have you -- incorporating the names of all three bands. Obviously, "I want to go see Dominant Legs and Dirty Ghosts and Superhumanoids for free" would be a terrible entry. "Hypotenuses are the dominant legs of right triangles, but only superhumanoids are good at geometry; the rest of us are too busy combating the dirty ghosts of American imperialism" would be better. You see where we're going with this.

  • 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.'"
