There are influential women all over the place this week, with Katy Perry hanging with Hillary Clinton and Madonna, Alanis Morissette inspiring an unlikely song cover, Dave Navarro's mom's story getting told in a documentary, and Lionel Richie making an important call to a special lady...

Here are the quotes of the week: 

“My birthday gift to fellow Scorpio, Hillary, says it all.”
Katy Perry bought this necklace for Hillary Clinton before performing at a Clinton rally in Iowa:

Fucked Up just covered Alanis Morissette - and it’s kind of awesome:

“People are probably going to go bad on me for saying this, but it’s an advantage to be gay in this country right now, that’s just the fact of the matter… In the next three years there’s probably gonna be a dude who’s not even gay that’s just like ‘Man, this is my last resort’…”
Hey, look! Wale is a freakin' idiot! (The Breakfast Club Power 105.1)

Dave Navarro has produced a documentary about his mother’s murder:

"Insufferable people... It’s just ridiculous, retards. I’m sorry. Can’t help them. Way too serious. Too much. Lighten up."

We have no idea what the fuck this is about, but it’s got Henry Rollins, Iggy Pop, Slash, Lemmy, Tom Araya, Josh Homme, Mark Lanegan, Nina Hagen, Grace Jones and Jesse Hughes in it:

  • 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.'"
