The Scene from Hayes and Larkin: Deadmau5, the Un-DJ, Sells Out the Bill Graham, October 29th, 2011

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Oh well.

“Joel Zimmerman doesn’t like being called a DJ. The 28-year-old dance music phenomenon from Toronto, better known as deadmau5, rolls his eyes at the description, which he sees as a hopelessly outdated way of describing what he does. His sets are closer to live performances. He plays mostly his own material, assembling tracks on the fly, using cutting edge computer technology, including software he’s helped write himself. read more

It’ll Cost You $200 Minimum to See the Outside Lands Music Festival, Or You Can Sneak In – Here’s How

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

All right, at this late date the only way you ticketless souls are going to get into the somewhat mismanaged Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival is to fork over $185 (plus TicketMonster fees) minimum OR to try to sneak in.

Now lots of people have a friend on the inside, so those peeps can just walk through the gates, but you, well, you’re going to have to deal with that eight-foot cyclone fencing.

You’re going to have to go under, over, or through the wire.

Here’s UNDER. See how that works? Easy peasy.

Well there’s the problem: No bottom tension wire on the chain link fence + Line posts too far apart = Jailbreak:

And here’s OVER. This here is called the bum rush:

See how that works right here. Oh, and later in the video, you can see one version of THROUGH.

Remember, this is one of those victimless crimes. (Its like punching someone in the dark.)

But if you feel guilty for not paying your fair share, well then you can throw a five-spot into a Recreation and Park donation box sometime – they have them at Strybing Arboretum, for example.

All right, be warned that the 2008 OL was The Best Ever. Remember picking up those nine Euros stranded by MUNI on McAllister and taking them along for the ride on your way home in the Land Cruiser? Good times. Oh, wait a sec, that’s my memory. But remember Radiohead and the sound system trouble? Oh, you weren’t there? Well that was The Best Ever. Nothing can compare with 2008.

Anyway, maybe the Outside Lands should be free for those 21 and younger, something like that?

Here’s the lineup for 2011:

Or just buy some three-day (that’s all that’s left for GA ticks)  or single-day “VIP” tickets, I don’t care.

Anyway, enjoy the show!

OMG, It’s Kesha at the Warfield! Twitterloin Fashion, Sidewalk Death Metal Opening Act, and a Smoky Bus Ride

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

Well, isn’t that nice? These suburban gals waiting in line early, early, early got all dolled up for Ke$ha. See?

(You don’t see this kind of scene too often in the Mid-Market, despite what you might think after watching this video from Tawain what makes fun of San Francisco corruption and corporate welfare.)

Mayor Edwin Lee kowtows to Biz Stone:

Moving on…

The gals in the much shorter V.I.P. line were not exactly enamored with this loud, loud, loud two-man death-metal band…

…but Warfield staff didn’t seem to mind:

And, even though part of the SoMA’s on fire, Yet Another Kesha Bus made it through the smoke and into the Twitterloin, safe and sound:

Hurray!

The Hot Black Market for Bay To Breakers Party Tickets: Would You Pay $125 for a Runner’s Bib?

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

Be sure to offer “market rate” when trying to buy an entry ticket for Bay to Breakers 2011 at this late date.

See?*

But, actually, you don’t need a bib to get in on the fun.

See?

The party starts in just 20 short days!

See you in the Panhandle!

*You’re not supposed to “transfer” your bib to anybody, per the rules. If it turns out you can’t make it, you’re supposed to just eat the loss? Presumably. Not sure how AEG handles refunds. Probably not well, I’m guessing…

OMG, Ke$ha Plays the Warfield May 4th!

It’s Kesha!

This event will finally put the 415 on the map.

Get your tickets right here from the scalpers on Craigslist. (Were these tickets sold out before they went on sale? Probably. In other news, Forrest Gump the movie ended up losing money – that’s Hollywood for you…)

Despite the Rain, the Show Goes On at the Haight and Ashbury Ben and Jerry’s – Phish Bassist Mike Gordon Plays

There still should be free ice cream at 2:15 PM or whenever the short set ends, though.

Actually, I’m surprised the NIMBYs didn’t try to kill this one:

Next stop, the Independent….
