    Hear This

    Korn Different from the long-hairs next door, Korn is arguably the only new metal band worth listening to. See the kickoff track, "Twist," from their ironically titled sophomore album, Life Is Peachy, wherein singer Jonathan Davis mimics the Tasm...

    Thurston Moore Back during SST's golden era in the early '80s, Sonic Youth poster boy Thurston Moore likely never envisioned his current role as the hard rock link to the loud improv (aka jazz) underground. But, along with Henry Rollins and fello...

    "We all know that Xmas is about ... sex," deadpans John Waters as the sold-out Castro Theater crowd recovers from a raucous standing ovation and nestles back into the plush seats. Waters smiles and looks out over the house with his great beagle eyes....

    New Year's at Home With all due respect to my fellow critics (in this proud publication and elsewhere), the pickings for New Year's concerts this year are looking not only slim, but skeletal. Besides, recommending any activity for New Year's shor...

    Mono Men, Drags, Galaxy Trio Contrary to what you've been led to believe, New Year's Eve is the wrong time for finery -- for funny stemware that doesn't hold liquid well and silk blouses that don't either. New Year's Eve is about excess: too much...

    Metallica's Christmas Party Not that you could get in, or, if you're anything other than a PR pucker-up or a die-hard hair farmer, that you'd want to. But allegedly, sometime this week, somewhere on Mission Street in the 'Loin/SOMA DMZ, a private...

    Frank Jackson Trio Most jazz cats argue that you've got to be "down with the changes" (i.e., both the history and the chords) before you can take the music "out" into the realm of innovation. Vocalist/pianist Frank Jackson has been down locally s...

    Where Credit's Due Local country-blues rockers Sweet Virginia appeared to have hit the big time when ads in December issues of both Spin and Rolling Stone featured the band's name and a small logo. Problem is, the band had nothing to do with it. ...

    "Good electrologists use expensive probes that are insulated all the way around, except at the very tip," which concentrates the zap on the root. "With cheap, uninsulated probes, you feel the zap the length of the probe, which irritates the skin arou...

    The House of Tudor

    This week, all of the events that look most promising to me happen on Thursday night. I couldn't choose between them, so you'll have to. It's been over 2 1/2 years since Dan Savage first appeared in the pages of SF Weekly. At the time, his irreverent...

    Art of Noise - Bart Hopkin's homemade musical instruments

    In a cabinlike home high above the rural town of Nicasio, near Point Reyes, Bart Hopkin is "playing" a homemade musical instrument that would peel the paint off the walls, were there any paint here to peel. Encased in a wooden box resembling a s...

    Suspicious Minds

    Some of the best books invoking pop this year didn't write about music so much as write around it. In these authors' hands, music becomes a catalyst, an illustration, a character, even a friend. Geoff Waite, Nietzsche's Corps/e (Duke) A heady ac...

    Night Crawler

    An old-fashioned barn dance sounded like a nice change of pace -- hay bales, fiddles, do-si-dos, and the like -- and even though it was scheduled for the plush confines of the Hi-Ball Lounge, I thought that was nothing a few straw hats couldn't fix. ...

    Night Crawler

    Early Sunday night finds the festive, star-strung environs of Cesar's Latin Palace thumping under the auspicious hand of DJ Josh. He winds through a savage set of hip hop with telling ease. The dance floor is packed. The tables are full. And, as the ...

    The House of Tudor

    It's The Time, ladies and gentlemen. You remember them -- Prince's early pet project whose street-wise flash practically stole the show in the little man's wet rock effigy Purple Rain. By the early '80s, the Time had already proven themselves dance f...
