Icing, for the uninitiated, is a prank popular among bros (and startup cofounders, apparently), in which victims are required to drink an entire Smirnoff Ice in one chug.

The most awkward part of the above photo is that Buzz Aldrin is a recovering alcoholic. Just look at the expression on the face of the (amazing) woman to Aldrin's right. She's all, "Bish, please."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
