    Divine Hammers

    The Breeders, Lutefisk, Paleface Great American Music Hall, Tuesday, May 13 It wasn't enough that the Breeders-Lutefisk-Paleface lineup offered a consistently worthwhile evening of pop song and dumb noise -- it also ably demonstrated the wh...

    Riff Raff

    A Note From the Music Editor Thanks to those of you who read into my blues essay a couple of weeks back, and who are still offering interpretations to the Letters section. Now, if it isn't too much trouble, would you mind actually reading it? (M.B.) ...

    Radar Bros. (Restless) Whether or not you'll want to pick up the Radar Bros. self-titled debut depends on how you feel about those first few Pink Floyd albums in your record collection. (Mind you, this isn't as direct a relationship as you thin...

    The House of Tudor

    The "Carnival of Fuck" revolves around a performance by Atlanta, Ga.'s semilegendary Impotent Sea Snakes -- a 17-person performance troupe comprised of musicians, circus performers, and go-go dancers that has been banned from more rooms than it has a...

    Riff Raff

    Selvin Watch (The Special Edition) When Riff Raff talked to Chron Entertainment Editor Liz Lufkin recently, we were mostly curious about one thing: What does Joel Selvin do all day? Even in his '80s heyday the pop-music critic didn't produce much cop...

    Dust to Dust - The frayed ends of insurgent country: Sweetheart of the Rodeo and No Depression

    In the inaugural issue of No Depression -- a fanzine out of Seattle that has somehow grown to embody the genre of "insurgent country" -- the editors wrote: "We claim Gram Parsons as our unholy ghost, minister of the shotgun wedding of country and roc...

    Night Crawler

    Climbing up a steep, dusty ridge to the uppermost point of Bernal Hill can be strange on the second Sunday in May. The city sprawls out below, with that Financial District pyramid twinkling in the afternoon sun; the bay is silvery-blue, a pleasing co...

    Racket

    There's a song on the John Wesley Harding album It Happened One Night called "July 13th 1985." A blow-by-blow recap of that day's Live Aid extravaganza, it culminates with the punch line of Harding feeling so guilty after listening to Bob Geldof's im...

    Racket

    In the ongoing high art/low art debate, comic books have gained increasing respect over the years, but are still held at a distance by many people. It's not the art form itself that's unpalatable -- rather, it's the stereotype of the comic-book fan t...

    Riff Raff

    Soft-Boiled Riff Raff likes it when boomers try to be hip. Exposes them as poseurs. Take the new Lively Arts column in the Chron. News tidbits on the arts, compiled by feature writer Jerry Carroll. Who writes like this. With sassy little verbless sen...

    You Talkin' to Me?

    Unsane, Kiss It Goodbye, Sweet Diesel Trocadero Sunday, April 27 When an evening's headliner is a niche-defying noise act like Unsane, it's odd that a band like Sweet Diesel would open. Well, actually, their generic brand of catchy pop-punk...

    Night Crawler

    Despite crops stretching to the horizon, life is parched in Hollister. It is as if the sun is closer to the ground here, an hour and a half away from San Francisco where the fog keeps us moist. We pull off the main road into a wide, dusty drive where...

    Stalemate - The Chess Records 50th anniversary reissues and the death of the blues

    Once, I was puttering through some mediocre bass guitar at a party with a drummer who at least claimed to have spent time with Jodie Foster's Army. It was a fun if uninspired racket, until we were joined by a genial, silvering boomer in a blazer and ...
