Copy, Right? Issues!

Idolator’s recent RIAA/Onion post reminded us of Charlie Anders’ sci-fi version of the situation taken to its logical limit in local magazine Skinny: How Regular People Thrive in San Francisco. Here’s the gist:

“‘As soon as I admitted that yeah, that ‘Pimp Your Bubba’ song wouldn't stop infesting my mind no matter how much good music I fed my ears, the woman went violent. She pulled out a badge and twisted my arm behind me. Steel cinched my wrists, turned me into a perp. ‘You have the right,’ she said.

In her car, she talked to me through a rusty mesh cordoning the back seat. ‘I'd put on the radio, but you might steal again.’

‘What have I done?’

‘Don't pretend. Your mental piracy is blatantly illegal.’”

Word. Charlie's brilliant. --Hiya Swanhuyser

  • 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.'"
