Your Friday Morning Pre-Party: Tegan & Sarah, Tori Amos, and Tool

Posted By on Fri, Dec 7, 2007 at 9:05 AM

Arrg. My head! It's like an ice pick behind my eyes! Did I really drink Jack Daniels for dinner last night at our Holiday Party? Yes, yes I did. So much Jack that our tasty sponsor ran out of his signature hooch. Every Holiday Party ends like this. But at least I didn't punch a supervisor or turkey slap a waitress. This Pre-Party is going to be late and short, on account of this berzerker party season in full swing. I'm your naked, cold, unbalanaced host, Web Editor David Downs. As usual, we begin the Pre-Party with some cool new tunes and a funny quick video. The tunes come from Oakland soul legend Darondo, off of the Ubiquity label, who'll be in our print edition next week. Prepare for the fucking dopeness.

Now the video — A local hipster spoof of the track bike phenomenon -- Fixed Push Skateboarding. "Just get pushing, bro." That was way better than you people deserve. Now, for the look back at the week: --LastNight: Tegan & Sara made us show them our asses. Dirty birds. --Matt Smith busted an Examiner blogger plagiarizing --And Matt Smith busted some Armenian scammers for betting on old people dying. --Lastly, noted music non-critic Margaret Cho shared her favorite albums of 2007. Upcoming this week, SF Weekly brings back pictures and reportage from:
Santarchy Tori Amos at Paramount tonight Bizarre Bazaar this weekend Andrew Bird this weekend Prefuse 73 this weekend and Tool next week
Plus we're running a lewd X-Mas Gift Guide Wednesday called the "12 Dildos of Christmas". So you got that going for you, which is nice. And lastly, we raise a middle finger to all the commenters worldwide that made our Kings of Commenting so entertaining. I wish all the fiber-optic line in SF was emo, so it could cut itself. Then we'd be done with this shit once and for all. Ciao, 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.) "Communist Party" Photo Courtesy of Threadless

  • 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.'"
