So, this is kind of fucked: “Proposition L, also known as the Sit/Lie Ordinance, makes it a crime to sit or lie down on any sidewalk or on top of any object (blanket, lawn chair, milk crate, etc.) from 7am-11pm, punishable by a $100 fine for first offense and up to 30 days in jail for a second.” We’re quoting the good folks at True Panther Sounds – the home label of bands like Girls, Magic Kids, and Hunx and His Punx – talking about the recently-passed San Franciscan law. They’re not taking the news sitting/lying down, either. In fact, they’ve released a charity compilation to benefit the homeless of San Francisco, the people the law most directly effects.
True Panther, which is based out of New York but was started in the City by the Bay, was extra irritated by the passing of Prop L, since it harshed the buzz of a Giants World Series victory. In retaliation, the label rounded up some of the Bay Area’s best young bands and quickly slapped together the tracklist below, which includes Ty Segall, Girls, and The Fresh & Onlys. You can stream the songs on the True Panther website now, but you can also quit being such a goddamn cheapskate and spend a dollar—every red cent of which will go to benefit The Coalition of Homelessness, San Francisco—and download all 21 tracks, many of which are previously unreleased.
