The Snitch has already pointed out the unsettling resemblance between Phil Spector, who murdered Paul McCartney's "The Long and Winding Road" with cheesy strings (and may have murdered a onetime Hollywood bombshell) and Carole Migden, a State Senator and hitchhiker's absolute worst nightmare.

  • 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.

Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
