Pied Piper Of Booze: Microblogging, Flash-Mobbing, Travel Vlogging, And Plain Old Drinking

Posted By on Thu, Nov 29, 2007 at 9:00 AM

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Colin Stuart, the self-proclaimed Pied Piper of Booze. He was the subject of Tuesday's flash-mob-esque social experiment in drafting random San Francisco tourists and 9-to-5ers into joining a roving, daylong drinking binge, all the exploits of which were meticulously recorded in frequently-updated video segments on microblogging site Zannel. Sound confusing? Well, it sort of is.

Suffice to say, Stuart's ingenuity and handy plastic flute were enough to lure a handful of people to the bar crawl's final destination, the Black Horse London Pub in Union Square (see the video above). Not exactly the "hundreds" Stuart predicted, but hey, it's all about the travel vlogging journey, right? (via Eater SF)

  • 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.'"
