Not awesome!

*Your third veggie dog and can of Lone Star (because there is no time for a proper meal at any point during SXSW)

* These Jesus freaks, crazying it up in the middle of 6th. St. (But, Awesome!: The two dudes who stood right in front of them and just gunned the full-tongue kisses with each other).

* Headliners staying in their vans for the length of the show. 

* Bars that are named the exact same thing, but are actually located in two different places. Hence, you stand in line for 20 minutes to get in, another 5 minutes for a drink, and realize you're at the wrong Beauty Bar. 

* Going to the right Beauty Bar to see what this whole Titus Andronicus hype is all about. See before you a pretty typical, albeit very enthusiastic, bar rock act with a singer who sounds like Bright Eyes. 

* Having your bassist get so drunk at a show in another city the night before that he misses your calls--and his plane to Austin--so you have to play two shows with a pickup bassist (overheard conversation with dude's not stoked bandmates).

*Watching your fifth drunk chick skid into the sidewalk like she's catching a fly ball.  (Seriously, that's gotta hurt).

  • 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.'"
