Those of you who’ve never met me know that I’m a silent but deadly advocate/lover/evangelist of electronic music in the San Francisco Bay Area. It’s a little hard down in the amateur ranks of Bay Area music to push electropop, livetronica, and all things DJ-based or synth-y or drum-pad-tacular. Up at the top in big...
