February 9th, 2010 · Tags: Satire

PingWi-Fi Timetrips To Music Of ‘Killer’ Solo Act In St. Louis

February 2nd, 2010 · Tags: Arts · Cities · Gadgets · Wi-Fi

I won’t lie. I was wearing a Mexican Baja hippie hoodie — in rastaman red-green-gold — before most of his fans were born … but it was all about the music at Keller Williams’ show at the intimate Pageant Theatre the other night in St. Louis. I mean, who don’t love a Phish-ish, Grateful Dead-esque […]
