Startup Bike SF: April ride /San Francisco
Not every networking event requires you to pickle your liver! Startup Bike is a monthly bicycle ride where you can get some healthy exercise and then pickle your liver! If you’re a entrepreneur, tech worker or investor who also happens to love bikes, come on out for a social ride.
“This month we’ll have to forgo a sponsor and bootstrap our own fun. We’ll do a 7.3 mile ride through the city and end up at SOMA StrEAT Food Park. The food park is full of yummy treats and beer for purchase (bring cash). Don’t forget to bring some layers to stay warm!”
Read more on their meetup page.

/Patti Smith: Advice to the young.
Interview by Christian Lund, the Louisiana Literature festival August 24, 2012, at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art | via the Louisiana Channel on vimeo
Advice not only to the young, but to those of us who want to escape the real fucked moments of life by going on the internet as audience or as voices, seeking the human condition connection –somewhere, with someone, with many– to perhaps make sense of it all.
*If you have read Just Kids +/or are a big Patti fan, there is an extended 10minute; beautiful words +thoughts: First encounters with Robert Mapplethorpe
Ebony Bones: Don’t fart on my heart
Greatest title I’ve heard for some time now. Poetically correct, seriously great.
She is British and her look is as colourful as her music (awesome foto from the ladiesroom.tv) Let’s start this week with this upbeat piece.
Cat Power: Manhattan
Chan Marshall’s love letter to NYC’s most famous borough.
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs have released their first official video. It looks a little too musical Cohen brothers to me, but well. They put a lovebird on it by featuring Lily Cole, otherwise known as Jack Dorsey’s girlfriend (Twitter, Square) – you know, silicon techy big chisme around this turf, ala The real housewi-fis de San Francisco.
Lorelle meets the Obsolete: These days
This tapatío band (From Guadalajara, México) is a bit on the psych spectrum of dreamy mellow melodies. The sound reminds me a bit of Galaxy 500 layered with loops of shoegaze-y repetitive vocals. Most of these bands sound good with headphones on computers, but then they sound great live. Hope they make it to the Bay Area at some point, I mean they are opening for The Cure in Mexico (this April). Not bad!
Learn about this duo here: Lorelle meets the Obsolete [about].
Chasms: Darker outside
Speaking of mellow, here is a new video by local band Chasms.
Lala Romero: Residue
