A bit of trivia as we bask in the glow of today's U.S. victory against Ghana in the World Cup: Don't forget that Clint Dempsey, the forward who sunk our first goal in the first minute of today's game, is also known as "Deuce," a rapper (of sorts). Hardcore soccer fans may remember the Nike-produced video "Don't Tread" from the 2006 World Cup; we think it's worth giving a stream now, just after Dempsey helped us win against a longtime World Cup rival. See Dempsey as Deuce do his thing below, and be grateful he's better at football than he is at rap:

  • 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.'"
