Your Daily Lick: Death Sentence: Panda

Insects Awaken (Upset the Rhythm)


A flute, a clarinet, and a drum kit: that’s all it takes for San Francisco trio Death Sentence: Panda to make serious noise. Black Dice-y chaos and shrill punk thrash are tempered by more traditional post-punk – traditional, that is, except for the hyper Eastern melodies on flute and pitch-shifted clarinet and Kim West’s punchy high-pitch hollering.

At the Totally Intense Fractal Mind Gaze Hut (671 24th St., Apt. B, Oakland) on Mar. 13. 8 p.m.
