Your Friday Morning Pre-Party: QOTSA, Santarchy, and Van Halen

Posted By on Fri, Dec 14, 2007 at 8:00 AM

Goddam, this week was brutal. It's the last week to get anything done before everyone starts checking out next week for the Holidays. Now that we're done grinding, we celebrate with a little pre-party before Santarchy tomorrow. I,Web Editor David Downs, control your vertical and horizontal. This is the Pre-Party. Cue the Audio and the Video. "Roota to the Toota" by Saga of the Simian Samurai

And the new Queens of the Stone Age video "Make It Wit You" in preparation for their upcoming show at the Warfield. Now, let's raise our pimp cups to surviving another week of bullshit, unlike some people:
— We pour a little out for 49ers fan Torrey Kretschman; and the dearly departed Pimp C — Remembering a Down South Legend; and for live shows at 21 grand, which are banned After an Alcohol Bust at the Bay's #1 Place for Experimental Music — We also mourn the passing of all the shows we reviewed this week like: Tool at Bill Graham Civic; RZA at the Independent, NudeAid Brings Porn-Art to Mighty; and Tori Amos' 'American Doll Posse' to the Paramount Theatre — While simultaneously celebrating The 12 Dildos of Christmas — An SF Kinky Gift Guide
Original online reporting this week included:

Stupid Landlord Tricks: 'Tis the Season to Hand Out Eviction Notices

— An interview to determine if the Millennial Generation Will Still Think S.F. Is Cool? And Will They Even Use the Word “Cool”?

— A salute to the Bay Area's seventies funk icon Darondo, the most quoteable guy of the year.

— A long-ass piece called No Linkup for You! a story about how in the world of online community, one authoritative man can dictate your social life

— Also, we're stoked to hear I Am Legend rules. Evidently that old 'last man on Earth' setup really works.

Also, we're toasting the launches of:

—Wednesday feature HuMP3 Day: SF Weekly's Music Section, Streamed; the daily posts under news category Laser-Guided Awesome — An SF Lifehack Blog with info on How to Make a Christmas Tree Pop-Up Card (not the only thing that will pop-up)

Plus our existing weekly features rocked with:

— Monday's RaidersSuckNinersSuck — Week 14 —"Get in there, Hill!"; SFGovernmentInAction!; and Your Monday Morning Hangover

— Tuesday's The Best Art Prints on the Web with Creep Machine's Josh Curating His Top 5 of the Week; and Tuesday's BetterKnowanSFBlog on Laughing Squid

Upcoming this weekend, SF Weekly brings back pictures and reportage from:


—Bizarre Bazaar

—Van Halen

—and Queens of the Stone Age

And lastly, we raise our pimp cups to all the commenters worldwide that made our Wednesday feature Kings of Commenting so entertaining. You guys are so cute when you're mad.

Remember to take advantage of a loved one over these holidays, that's what love is about,

David Downs

(Your Friday morning pre-party kicks off every Friday morning around 8 a.m. (unless we're vomiting that early). Send us your pics, videos, mp3s, events, and links if you want to be part of the party. If not, that's your bad.)

  • 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.'"
