BART Vows to Make Your Commute More Annoying this Valentine's Day

ABC news reports that when exiting the Montgomery BART station today you may be accosted by Trish McDermott. McDermott works for San Mateo based, an online dating service, and, depending on what article you read is either "Vice President of Love" or the "Vice President of Romance." Either way, we would like to see what the application process is like for obtaining said position. McDermott and other representatives of the online dating service will be pressing roses on BART patrons and offering last minute love advice in a Valentine's Day marketing ploy cloying named “The Love Train.” To make matters worse, all of this corporately sponsored Valentines Day shilling will be accompanied by "a performance by an acoustic guitar player, who will play love songs."

Happy VD Day, everyone! -Andy Wright

  • 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.'"
