How Do You Say "I Voted!" in Scottish? 

Wednesday, Oct 22 2008
What do you need to guide you safely through the terrifyingly important election tonight? For our part, we need a safe space to yell full-on obscenities at the television screen. We also need a mass of like-minded people, so we can be sure everyone's yelling at the same time. And, sadly, booze. We need booze. OK, we just want booze. At the Election Party thrown by go-go literary Scotsman Alan Black, we can find everything we need AND sign-up sheets for enlisting in the Union Army in case we need to invade the South. In case any Republicans show up, Black claims he's offering anger management classes and fliers explaining how to perform CPR so pub-goers will be ready for the “likely McCain heart attack." Hey … McCain, is that Scottish? Anyway the party also features a political open mike for rants and, you know, television, screaming, and booze.

    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.'"
