Video: The Richter Scales Take on Crunchpad Debacle, Google Voice Gate, and Murdoch/Google Wars

Posted By on Sun, Jan 10, 2010 at 2:49 PM

In further proof that Techcrunch founder Mike Arrington has a sense of humor, we present The Richter Scales' "In the Valley" a ballad sung to the tune of "At the Copacabana" making light of the perpetual back-stabbing, intrigue, and general decadence of Silicon Valley culture.

For those of you that only attended the Crunchies afterparty at City Hall, you missed out on the first song ever to reference "robots.txt." Our favorite lyric, "The WSJ gets all its news from bloggers anyway."

  • 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.'"
