On Friday night, our traveling photo booth made an appearance at DNA Lounge, where the Hubba Hubba Revue was staging a sexy coup d'etat during a celebration in honor of vile dictator Presidente Juan Baptista Maximilian "Little Bobo"

Kingfish (pictured above), and his military strongmen.

Our photographers Mike and Jen Cash report that the fiesta got hot early on, with burlesque performances by

Kiki Bomb, The Twilight Vixen Revue, Bunny Pistol, and more. With tequila, cigars, gun-toting senoritas and free mustache rides, El Presidente has outdone himself yet again. See our Viva la Revolucion photo set here.

Saturday morning took us (and dozens of dogs) to Duboce Park for DogFest 2009, where pups and veterans competed for best jump, best bark and most "ear-resistible" as kids and their parents looked on. See Hanna Quevedo's colorful photo set here.

Gordie Young was going to review Morrissey's Saturday Paramount set for us, but that was canceled when the Moz called in sick -- apparently the smell of grilled meat on the breeze at Coachella was a bit much for his delicate sensibilities. We would be more forgiving if Mr. M wasn't spotted at the DNA Lounge in perfect health that very same evening.

Coachella took Indio, CA by storm Friday through Sunday. See our photos from Day 1, Day 2 and the obligatory Half-Dressed People & Scenes from the Desert slideshow.

  • 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.'"
