Bootie-SF 4 Year Anniversary Party @ DNA Lounge, 8/11/07

A bit of a non-traditional live music review for me, but here’s a short recap of the 4th anniversary party for Bootie. Bootie is a fun party if you take it for what it is: a ‘cutting edge’ music/club event that is part people watching extravaganza, part dance-a-thon, part Burning Man warm up. While it […]

Top 5: Ways artists should use MySpace

Having just completed a test spin of M.I.A.’s new album, Kala, currently streaming on myspace, I’m in the mood to critique artist’s usage of myspace. Many do a fine job, many could do better, and then there are those who suck at it. 1. MySpace is a living, breathing representation of yourself. Inject some personality […]

Year Zero, the TV show…aka, HRC's dream come true?

I am currently NIN starved. Seriously, I haven’t seen TR in person in almost a year, and I feel anemic. So, as all of these craptastic sites start reporting that a YZ TV show is in the works, I largely ignore it, you know, since the whole Russian incident. I mean, TR said YZ is […]

myspace find: astra heights

When I get friend requested by a band, I do the usual profile sweep to determine if they warrant a ‘myspace find’. To my surprise, I found an interesting biographical tidbit while checking out Astra Heights’ profile- they are from the same small Texas town (pop. 5000) as part of my family. And I thought […]

I'm Back

Yes. I survived Las Vegas. Barely. Expect a recap of the Vegas music scene shortly. In the meantime, enjoy this lovely playlist which encapsulates the mostly shitty standard DJ playlist for the LV clubs (I threw a few gems in there that we used as ‘get ready’ music). Party Like A Rock Star should be […]

The Smashing Pumpkins @ The Fillmore, 8/1/07

It’s the last night of an 11 night residency at The Fillmore. In our master ticket plan, we decided to try for the last night, because a) people would try to get tickets for the first few shows, and our chances might be better, and b) good things happen on the last show of a […]
