Clapp Your Hands

Our writers tell you what's hot this week.

For fans of lo-fi indie pop, Sunnyvale songwriter Allen Clapp is somewhat of a legend. Since the early ’90s, he has written some of the catchiest and most ambitiously composed homemade singles, both in his band the Orange Peels and as a solo musician. His candy-sweet innocence even caught the ears of Coca-Cola’s advertising execs, who featured his music in an ad last year. In September, the bespectacled musician released Something Strange Happens, a collection of out-of-print singles, B-sides, and obscure recordings, and since has turned his attention to melancholic, vocal-rich songs under the moniker Fairwood Singers. The Orange Peels open for Seattle’s Central Services, with Indiana Hale, on Saturday, April 28 at the Stork Club. 9 p.m., $5. StorkClubOakland.com
