  • Angry Birds on the iPad. Does this look familiar?

We can say with near-total confidence that Jello Biafra will hate the people in this video. You tech-employed, indie-pop-loving Twitter users might just love it, though. This none-too-subtle advertisement for a new wireless speaker is a music video spoof of Ice Cube's immortal "It Was a Good Day," recast in San Francisco in 2011. There are taco trucks, bougie lofts, Steve Jobs, Angry Birds, organic produce, bike riding, Twitter and Instagram references, and even -- vom! -- beer pong. Yuppie scum: Kind of hurts to see your whole life summarized in a three-minute video, eh*?

*Just joking. We like Twitter and taco trucks, too.

  • 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.'"
