    Honey Sound System

    A hand-picked assortment of bright young DJs, musicians, and designers sharing a love of timeless disco, Honey Soundsystem began as a roving revelry and gradually worked its way up to a weekly gig. A grab-bag of queer nightlife surprises, each sessi...

    The Googly-Eyed Beholder

    Here's a question college professors love to throw out: What is art? I take refuge in Frank Zappa's general attitude about the stuff: I know it when I see it. Last week I decided to visit SFMOMA, where you can't help but be confronted with the de...

    George Clinton

    Easily one of the funniest articles in The Onion's history was a 1998 gem headlined "Clinton Threatens To Drop Da Bomb On Iraq." That's George Clinton, and if the erstwhile P-Funk leader had been in charge, we probably wouldn't be in the mess we're ...

    The Outside Lands alternative: In the Pines

    Outside Lands Picks Part 2: Dead Weather

    Supergroups, by nature, are volatile beasts. All that individual talent and reputation comes together in the calculated hope that the sum will exceed its celebrated parts. But what if it's an accidental supergroup? And what if some members are co...

    End of the Ultra Lounge Era?

    Personally, I've always found the concept of the "Ultra Lounge"--an upscale dance club--more than just a little bit pretentious. Bottle service for exclusive clientele who arrive in limousines? That's not chic, just bougie. And let's face it, dress c...

    Track of the Day: Crystal Stilts

    The band's photo kinda says it all. Brooklyn's Crystal Stilts live inside a noir-shaded world, where drama and glamor come together behind a soft artistic focus. The band's logaze (lo-fi+shoegaze) rock has been a huge hit since local label Slumberlan...
