Huh. We just realized we're crazy.

How so? The Google map above traces the public transit odyssey your humble narrator undertook between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Fifteen transfers, seven local transit agencies -- ah, sorry, we're having transit flashbacks. BACK DOOR! BACK DOOR!

You can read our cover story right here (and that artwork doesn't just look like something Mark Ulriksen would create -- it is something Mark Ulriksen would create). For photos from my slow journey down south, click below.

  • 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.'"
