Despite your PBR tattoo, pimped-out track bike, and closet full of guayabera shirts and skinny pants, admit it: your life as a hipster was incomplete. You desperately searched for meaning at Kuduro parties, chic art openings, and monster truck rallies. You were halfway through your mashup mix of Brazilian tropicalismo and hair-metal when you realized: if only I had a "Prince vs. Michael Jackson" wristband, my life would be worth more than the $200 I just spent on a nylon windbreaker.

Rejoice, for the PVMJ bands--similar to the Lance Armstrong Livestrong joints, but without the added burden of actually supporting a cause other than classic yet ironically cliched music--have arrived, according to PVMJ/Bomb Hip-Hop DJ Dave Paul. Made out of silicon, the wristbands are available in 8 colors: Yellow, White, Gray, Black, Green, Light Blue, Red and--of course--Purple. Order them online here and you'll be all set for the next SF installment of the now-legendary party (September 19 at Madrone Lounge). If you're a real hipster and not just a trendy one, you'll probably want to get up on the rare vinyl remixes--featuring extended dance mixes of "Let's Work," "Sexy MF," and others--of the Purple One also available on the Bomb Hip-Hop site.

  • 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.'"
