When you're famous, you can pay for in-mouth food delivery.
  • When you're famous, you can pay for in-mouth food delivery.

Here, Bart Davenport illustrates the perils of fame: Namely, that it makes you an asshole. Davenport, a longtime Bay Area musician, apparently gained experience with the dickishness of notoriety through his recent move to L.A. So in "Fuck Fame," over chiming New Wave guitars and an easygoing backbeat, Davenport plays the jerk: forcing his assistant to take notes, cruising disinterestedly through a supermarket, seeking attention in the bar. It makes for a funny clip. Just don't let the perks of fame attract you.

"Fuck Fame" is from Davenport's new solo album, Physical World. He performs July 9 at the Make Out Room with Extra Classic.

  • 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.'"
