Pontiacs and Giant Pussies

Posted By on Fri, Jun 1, 2007 at 10:31 AM

It doesn’t get much cooler than watching a Pontiac commercial, does it? What about if said ad is for the Hollywood premiere of the Transformers movie? Still no? Ok, ok. What about when that consumer candy features a chic, automobile-friendly soundtrack sample of industrial beats by local electro-rockers Luxxury? Hopefully the royalties from that Luxxury band/luxury car commercial partnership will help fund front man Baron Von Luxxury’s alter-ego remixer -- he reconfigures tunes from the likes of local indie pop darlings Scissors for Lefty, Portland art punks Glass Candy, and, well, can’t-give-her-hipster-props-but-hey-she’s-a-star Hilary Duff! And in his free time, the Baron fights crime by crushing baby kitties with giant lasers. Sweet! And vicious! -- Jennifer Maerz

  • 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.'"
