Aesthetic Decade

Johan and I have both lived in San Francisco now for around a decade, and in that time have been to a lot of shows in our fair city. Tonight Johan reflects on his 10 years here, and the end of the decade (yes, yes, “there's no year zero”, I know…) by highlighting some of the noteable shows he's seen over the time.

We're featuring DJ Shadow's new double album Our Pathetic Age, his best album in years that encapsulates a whole swathe of his talents and tone.
