Ok, so for some artists, the mix of politics and music is a terribly preachy combo. But the Obama fever is so infectious -- and frankly, I'm so excited to watch the VP candidate debates tonight (come to Nickies, at Haight and Fillmore, with a crew of us if you want a spot to watch on big screen TVs) that I have to post this Z-Trip "Obama Mix." It pulls in a little of this (Pink Floyd) a little of that (Public Enemy), some Obama speech samples, and a lot of rhetoric for positive change. The track is a cool little marker for our time, and for how far-reaching momentum for this Democratic candidate has spread. Download the "Obama Mix" for free here ... and here's to Biden kicking ass tonight (without seeming, ya know, all cocky about it). -- Jennifer Maerz

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
