In the print section this week, Dan Weiss finds out
why Ariel Pink is happy to discuss his personal finances but not his personal life, and discovers the dude has a penchant for saying too much. Meanwhile, David MacFadden-Elliott talks to
longtime Paul McCartney Band guitarist Rusty Anderson about how he encountered Paul, and what it's like to play with towering musical figures like the ex-Beatle, Elton John, Ozzy Osbourne, and Santana. Oh -- and our Tamara Palmer heard straight from
the Jacka himself that his Bay-born rap group Mob Figaz are trying to balance a street edge with their spiritual (read: Muslim) side.
Lastly: make yourself aware of the Donkeys and Deerhoof playing
at Bottom of the Hill Thursday (if you're lucky enough to have tickets -- it's way sold out), and the Ghostly International electronic showcase with Mux Mool and others thumping
Mezzanine on Friday.
