Reading this real estate listing on Curbed for available penthouse units in the Soundworks Residences at 542 Natoma (having formerly housed the likes of Radiohead and the Cocteau Twins *heh* as they "unwound between studio sessions") I feel an almost palpable pain over the fact that I am not, nor will I ever be, a filthy rich rock star. I knew I should have kept playing the guitar in high school. The units start at $1,350,000. Curse you fate! Read the description and weep, oh poor masses:

"Warmed floors of natural stone and quartersawn walnut will coddle your feet in wintertime...A gently terraced staircase leads to a combination kitchen and dining room that opens to a heated patio. Dishware displayed in the Scavolini cabinetry becomes an aesthetic statement against the understated Bauhaus design. Ascend to a large living room infused with natural light from clerestory windows at the top of the 18’ boxed cathedral ceiling. The flow of the home is effortless and dynamic, unified by coordinated elements of the finishes like the green glass accents throughout, and the warm dark wood... "

  • 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.'"
