Do You Need a Woman Who Needs Bad Religion?

Posted By on Tue, May 13, 2008 at 7:39 AM

Having dated dudes whose music taste would make even the non-snobs cringe (one specific guy comes to mind who just loved the Blue Man Group -- and not in an ironic, Arrested Development way), I can see the appeal of matchmaking based on good taste. But something about screams Hot Topic more than it does hot 'n' heavy. Then again, I've never really needed a guy who was into "Goth Rock / Industrial" ... although, ok, easily ignoring the entire "jam band/Deadheads" pool of single guys in flip-flops could save many ladies a whole lotta trouble.

The music lovers' dating site, which launched last week, includes one interesting bit of trivia: it's the brainchild of Daniel House, who played in O.G. grunge band Skin Yard (which included legendary Seattle producer Jack Endino) and who also launched C/Z records (once the home to NW acts like Built to Spill, 7 Year Bitch, the Gits, and Nirvana). Now there's a guy who had some good taste in music once upon a time. Check off the "grunge/stoner" category and per chance Daniel (or the rockers he inspired) will be just your type. -- 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.'"
