SF’s Random Rab

Random Rab’s “Master of Gyroscopes” is a downtempo dream that transports me to a serene setting somewhere in India with gentle yet pulsating bass and hollow wooden percussion sounds. The sound of shared understanding that makes your head nod to the rhythm as well as to the unspoken message of its melody. I wish this beat would accompany me down the streets of San Francisco.

Bassnectar at The Fox Oakland (12/11)

Bassnectar played the last show of his fall tour to a sold out crowed at the The Fox Theater Oakland Saturday night (12/11). Amp Live of Zion I opened the show. Followed by the worst Bassnectar impersonation of-all-time by Eskimo. After we where all bored listening to music we didn’t come to hear, Bassnectar got up wasting no time dropping bass lines and sweeping up with the title track of his latest EP, “Wildstyle.” Bassnectar continued to show why the man sells out every show. He uses his music to give his audience the ultimate visceral workout. People in the balcony where pumping their arms and throwing glowing pieces of plastic onto the packed crowd below. Guys where lifting their girlfriends up to crowd surf. Hundreds of under-21 kids walked around bass drunk and happy. The sluts can’t wait for his next Bay Area appearance when he plays the Saturday night before San Francisco’s shit-show-race, Bay To Breakers. See you all there.
