Jerry Brown Throws Down: Criminal Music Companies to Pay for Music Fests Statewide in 2010

Monday, May 17th, 2010

California Attorney General Jerry Brown can’t abide goddamn record companies that fix prices. (Feel free to read that as record companies, straight up.) Anyway, when you bought all those Rico Suave CDs back in the day, you paid too much. 

Can I tell you how this all relates to the big scheme of things? No, I get my record co. antitrust lawsuits mixed up. But this whole deal probably had something to do with bad behavior by execs from Universal Music Group, Sony Music EntertainmentWarner Music Group, and/or EMI Group.

But that doesn’t matter now. What matters that these melon-farmers are going to own up for past misdeeds by paying for statewide music festivals.

Brown and Arts Council Host Statewide Music Festivals Funded by a Price-Fixing Settlement
SACRAMENTO -Yodeling, operas, musicals, Japanese drumming and symphonies are among the summer events around the state sponsored by more than a half million dollars from a Department of Justice settlement with music companies in a case of fixing advertised prices.

Attorney General Edmund G. Brown Jr. and the California Arts Council today announced dozens of musical presentations during this summer’s festival season and throughout 2010. Visit the California Arts Council’s website for a full listing of concerts and events benefiting from the grants:
http://www.cac.ca.gov/programs/doj/.

“The Attorney General’s office is proud to be part of providing these cultural events that bring people together to experience all types of music. It’s affordable because of our ability to provide discounted tickets,” Brown said, “and these performances are a testament to the incredible richness and diversity of the state’s music.”

The grants support performances and events in 43 of the state’s 58 counties, reaching an estimated audience of 200,000.

Soul Slam IV: Prince vs. Michael Jackson – The Final Battle in San Francisco Tomorrow

Friday, September 18th, 2009

Soul Slams I, II, and III ended without a clear winner, but tomorrow, well, things should be different.

Now, the King of Pop has the height but Prince, he has the reach so keep that in mind tomorrow night when you’re wagering at the musical squared circle that is the Mezzanine at Triple Four Jessie in the SoMA, doors at 9:00 PM.

And remember, early-ass arrival is “highly suggested.” It’s Going to be on, per Tamara Palmer

The Ferry Building’s Port of San Francisco, or is it “PORT F SAN RANCISCO”?

Monday, March 16th, 2009

The touristas coming in on the ferry boats might almost believe the PORT F part of this scene, but the “RANCISCO” part gives away the fact that a couple of letters were missing on this evening.

It looks nice nevertheless.
