Gotta love this: a group of culture jammers known as the Deconstruction Workers (tag line: "construction through critical deconstruction") is organizing a flash mob for this Saturday, March 15 at 2:00 p.m. called "Let It Rain" to take place at a yet-to-be-named San Francisco mall. There's no mistaking the similarity to Abbey Hoffman's famous 1967 Yippie protest in which protesters invaded the gallery of the New York Stock Exchange and tossed tons of mostly fake dollars onto the traders below:

"A group of people will 'disperse' fake money from a top story mezzanine, while a set mob of people scramble to gather the faux-dough on the floor below. The 'money' will carry slogans such as 'Your ad here' and 'A dollar for your conscience' mocking the excessive consumption prevalent in shopping malls."

It's called a statement people. Get one. The exact time and locale will be revealed Friday. Check their website for updates. (via Squid List)

  • 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.'"
