Your Precious YouTube Videos May Go Down the Tube

Posted By on Thu, Aug 9, 2007 at 6:52 AM

Music videos are awesome. We yearned for the days when MTV and VH1 actually included music in their daytime content, but then YouTube came along and made everything better. Suddenly you could watch your favorite videos whenever you wanted instead of waiting until 2:30 in the AM for supposed music channels to finally show music. But just like the Viacom days of yore, all good things come to pass, and now the Big Four major record labels have joined an existing copyright lawsuit against the video-sharing service. And although the suit is yet to reach a verdict, we may lose out on another music video haven. Oh well. At least you can ingest psychedelics, put on your favorite song, and close your eyes. Bam, instant video.

  • 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.'"
