    Dosh keeps it interesting, plays Saturday at the Cedar

    Martin Dosh makes music that's wonderful to listen to and impossible to categorize. It's avante-garde without being difficult, electronica but not really, and lyricless yet wholy expressive. I sat down with Dosh at Common Roots Cafe in anticipation...

    The Top 10 Most Preposterous Rap Songs of 2008

    Watchmen's future in doubt after surprise ruling

    Interview: Derrick May flies a new flag for 'techno'

    THE LOFT (above Barfly) 12.26.08 Contrary to what you have read in the history books--and there's actually been a few on the topic--Derrick May doesn't play techno music. Since 2007, May and several of his proselytes, Carl Craig, Stacy Pullen and...

    Flyer of the Week: Hot Roxx

    This week's flyer is for the Hot Roxx Hexmas Extravaganza, a live show this Saturday night hosted by Hot Roxx DJs Jen and Macku$. Gotta love the hand drawn portrait of everyone's favorite Hexagon bartender, Rose, in the lower right corner.

    Claude Von Stroke to hit the VIP at First Ave.

    Coming from Detroit, but finding his techno legs in San Francisco, the DJ-Producer called Barclay Crenshaw by his momma makes big dumb techno-house tracks, and each one gets bigger (and sillier) than the last. From the phone sex inspired stutter-groa...

    Dean Martin: The Ouija Interview

    Har Mar Superstar to head home to Triple Rock

    What's Har Mar's secret? You won't find it beneath his rotund belly, underneath the lime green briefs that often serve as stagewear at his concerts. You will find it in his music--a tongue and cheek pastiche of loverman R&B that probably gets him as ...

    Sick of Sarah

    There's a particular type of strong-voiced punky girl-rock, from Joan Jett to Elastica to Letters to Cleo, that has always made this critic a little weak in the knees. Sick of Sarah has been fulfilling that type to a T in the local arena for a coupl...

    Plagiarists: Literal Scene

    Plagiarism, or "borrowing" as it's known in popular music, has a sordid relationship with indie tastemakers who have created a culture of negativity around the tradition. Plagiarism still thrives in indie rock, of course, but a band that calls itsel...
