Weekly Wooot -- Clipd Beaks

Epicsauce has teamed up with the excellent San Francisco blog SFist -- each week we provide SFist readers with a preview of the upcoming week in music.
Yet another packed week of shows with local indie rock act Worker Bee at Hemlock Tuesday, San Diego's lo-fi garage-punk quartet The Soft Pack at Rickshaw Stop Thursday, hip hop producer extraordinaire Madlib at Mighty Friday and San Francisco's extremely eclectic and always entertaining Battlehooch at Bottom of the Hill Saturday.

We are particularly excited to catch Oakland-by-way-of-Minneapolis trio Clipd Beaks with rising local favorites White Cloud and Late Young at Hemlock Friday. While no doubt impossible to pigeonhole, the experimental outfit's post-punk and krautrock influenced sound is quite reminiscent of Liar's 2006 classic Drums Not Dead, complete with tribal drumming, throbbing bass lines and a consistent overall hypnotic drone. This week marks the release of Clipd Beaks highly anticipated third album To Realize, and if the teaser tracks "Blood" and "Atoms" are any indication, the buzz on these guys is soon to reach a fever pitch. These Hemlock shows are known to fill up fast, so be sure to get there early.
