  • Get Shot, masturbatory provocateurs.

So a Sacramento punk band called Get Shot filmed its female bassist pleasuring herself on the front lawn of the Westboro Baptist Church's headquarters.

Why did they do it? More like, why not? After all, this band already has its own free porn site. Gotta keep things interesting somehow. Plus, the Westboro Baptist Church is basically the worst, as the band pointed out in a Facebook-posted "Press Release!!!!" today.

"The Phelps family and Westboro Baptist Church are ridiculous and do nothing except spread hate and cause controversy. As a bisexual woman and the bass player of a ridiculous punk band, I wanted to spread my legs and cause controversy," says Get Shot's Laura Lush.

The stunt, of which there is a very low-quality and very-NSFW video over at Gawker, violated state obscenity laws, according to the band, but so far, there's little indication that anyone at the WBC actually cared. The church hasn't acknowledged the video yet, but the band claims someone from the Church's IP address spent 41 minutes looking at their website. Its Twitter exchange with the church is rather amusing: Oh, but they're not done yet! Get Shot has even more ambitious hopes for the future: "There was a lot of traffic and we saw a few cops at a coffee shop a few blocks away. We barley had enough gas money and cocaine to make it to Denver for our next concert," writes member J.P. Hunter. "Since we can't afford bail, we had to cut it a little short before the cops got called. If someone will bail us out, we will bring a group of girls and a whole camera crew when we come back in a few months." There you have it. Send all future donations here. -- @iPORT

  • 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.'"
