Battle Bears might be cute and fluffy, but they're infinitely more badass than the chipper hair-driers of Star Wars 2000 (so named because the original Star Wars is to its prequels what the original Blues Brothers is to Blues Brothers 2000.) Like the original Death Star, they suffer from a great design flaw: in this case, a tendency to collapse into a tinkling heap if they come within fifteen feet of a light saber. We bet this display can't even survive flash photography.

  • 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.'"
