[via Emma Silvers' review of Katie Day's new EP]
man, I’m so sick of this shit. if you can’t afford to live in the mission then leave. it’s called C-A-P-I-T-A-L-I-S-M people. Get rich or get the f out.
May the tech bubble never burst!
“Supply and Demand”
White hipsters who displaced blue-collar hispanic people angry about being displaced by white nerds.
Well the white hipsters were also working class, they did service work. They didn’t really displace exactly, just crowded out. It’s cultural.
six figure salary programers are economically displacing people. There’s a class element to that. It’s different. It’s worse.
i don’t think you know what that word means (class). white hipsters are not in a different class than the white collar workers and working part-time service jobs doesn’t make them ‘working class’. almost all of the new (last 5-10 yrs) residents of the mission came from middle and upper class homes.
i love that people are taking the opportunity make art with all this anger thats being perpetuated … Its like… a scene!
Katie Day is as local as it gets. From her website. “After her 2010 move to San Francisco, Day began to and further expand and develop her sound”
Ha, this is such an absurd city
Scum, I co-produced this track with Katie, and I was born at Geary and Divis in 1980. Before that, my father was born in Vallejo in 1950. My grandparents moved to the bay long before that. Who the hell cares when Katie moved here!? She took a topic everyone is talking about and made into an awesome dance trackat’s hella fun to play loud at parties.
Ha if you can’t understand why people might care I don’t know what to tell you.
Hahahahahahahahaha – you’ve gotta be a member of my fam, right?
Good for you.
i’ll clear it up for you Scott: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypocrisy
I dig some of these tracks, but falling on tropes for writing gets old fast. Like listening to a bunch of people calling each other hipsters.
As long as this stuff still gets tech douches’ lulu lemons all twisted up I say go hipsters go. You people are fucking bland and need to stay down in the peninsula
Yea what this knob said.
It sucks you guys cant enjoy it
Where the fuck is the music you make you twats
I missed the part where anyone actually said anything about this alleged “music”.
thank you, scum, for pointing out how this is barely music.
also, screaming fuck you into a mic is SOOOO punk, little hipster girl. enjoy that anger when you’re 45 and your tattoos are sagging.
Music’s just music until you put a polarizing message into it (and do so in a hypocritical manner).
oh the irony.
when artsy entitled white kids displace hispanic blue-collar families: ‘the mission is so cool, i love the edgy vibe and i like hanging out at the Phone Booth now that it’s not so gay!’
when new entitled white kids displace the last wave of entitled white kids: ‘GENTRIFICATION IS RUINING THE MISSION! I’M ON THE SIDE OF THE HISPANIC FAMILIES WHO SURVIVED MY INFLUX! SI SE PEUDE!’
also ironic: these songs being shared on youtube, soundcloud, and vimeo. oh and don’t forget to check out literally all of these bands on facebook!
i don’t think you know what irony means.
Yeah! use carrier pigeons dammit
The blog so nice they named it twice. (And to be clear, it's mostly about the Mission.)
