Are We Headed for Footloose Territory? 

Wednesday, Jan 13 2010
The Alcoholic Beverage Control Web site defines a disorderly house as one which a) “disturbs the neighborhood” or b) "has many crimes ongoing inside." Neither one describes the DNA Lounge, in our opinion, but we are of course not lawyers, secret Christian crusaders within the ABC, or cops. Ha ha, just kidding — there probably aren't any Christian crusaders in the ABC using our tax dollars to harass nightclubs! We're also sure there's no connection between that possibility and the phrase "injurious to the public morals," which is what the ABC cited the still-closed DNA for being. At the second Flux Summit, a group of local electronic-music industry people discuss "What's Shaking Down SF Music Venues?" Panelists are shockingly well-chosen and include Michael Winger from the Recording Academy (which puts on the Grammys), concerned local pol Debra Walker, Entertainment Commish guy Terrance Alan, entertainment lawyer Mark Rennie, and Bottom of the Hill owner Tim Benetti.

  • 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.'"
