Excellent week with The Knife's Karin Dreijer Andersson's solo project Fever Ray at the Regency Center tonight, Anticon's recently resurrected hip hop duo Themselves at Bottom of the Hill Tuesday and Portland's soon-to-be-renamed Starfucker at Bottom of the Hill Wednesday
We are particularly excited to see San Francisco's own Maus Haus at Amnesia Saturday. We first caught the eclectic sextet at Café Du Nord last April, and and have been simply enamored ever since. The band's synth heavy blend of 60s psychedelia and contemporary electropop is shockingly tight and orchestrated, a refreshing departure from the current stream of laptop produced electro we love to hype. And while the music geek in us is thrilled by the acts use of horns, vintage keyboards, midi controllers and occasional dueling drum kits, the band still manages to please our internal hipster -- their shows are always all out dance parties.
