Local DJ BT Magnum Gets Records Stolen in Europe

Bad news for fans of local DJ BT Magnum, aka Brian Tarney, and all of those planning to show up to Saturday's impressively billed rhythm-fest at Mezzanine: According to a blog post, Tarney was slinging beats over on the continent (of Europe) when some prime-quality assholes snagged all of his records

Here it is from, the man himself:

BT Magnum is in Europe bringing sweet boogie flavor to dance parties all over and just got all of his records jacked while on a train to Amsterdam. If you are over in that neck of the woods and you see someone pedaling raw, sick ass heat, please bring it to the attention to the authorities! These records took years, lots of cheddar, and countless hours avoiding work; help him out if you can!

So tell that to your buddy, your half-brother, or your girlfriend who's on study abroad: If you see anyone who looks like they don't belong wielding an impressive stack of wax -- "sick-ass heat" is the key descriptor here -- act! We leave the specifics of any moves to you, of course. And while we're guessing (hoping, etc.) that Magnum has digitized copies of his records to play at Friday's set, losing your vinyl on a train to Amsterdam must really, really suck. 

More on Tarney, who writes for the old-school dance jam blog Beat Electric and curates the lineups at Mezzanine, here.

  • 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.'"
