DNA Lounge: Wherein I post a bunch of videos to try and convince you to come to see Ruby tonight.

Hey, come see this show tonight! I say this not only because I think it will be really good, but also because we don't have a whole lot of live music in the next two months, since the whole world just shuts down between Halloween and New Year's Eve.

Anyway, Ruby is awesome and I think the last time she played in SF was probably in 1996, and that was probably with Pigface. Here are some video reminders of how great the album Salt Peter was:

And here are some clips of her singing with the Pigface 25 year reunion a few weeks ago, so hopefully we'll get some of that:

Perennial favorites Halou are opening, and it will be their 11th time here, I think. They seem to have only ever made one video as Halou and that was a cartoon, so instead here are some videos by their alter ego, Stripmall Architecture:

In other news, here are a few recent photo galleries:

Vektor vs. Pixel @ Codeword
Also there have been two new mixtapes since the last time I posted, so please let those help you get through these coming dark months:
