Doe Eye: Show Preview 

Wednesday, May 28 2014
Comments

With all the raw, blistered drums and bass fuzz of a late-'90s MoWax production, Doe Eye's debut album, T E L E V I S I O N, kicks off like the Kool-Aid man crashing through a brick wall. Over the next 36 minutes, San Francisco's own Maryam Qudus keeps pouring on the sweet stuff — honeyed vocals, reverbed melodies — over oftentimes wavy, jarring production that's equally at home in the coffeehouse and the punkhouse. Live and on stage, Qudus cuts a Clara Bow figure while entrancing a room, and she returns to the city this week to finish a nationwide tour accompanied by her new album's steady and worthy climb up the college charts.

    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
