Today we have the illustrious Steve Malkmus and the Jicks playing on the Amoeba stage at 7pm!  I'm very excited about this.  I enjoy Pavement, his previous band.  My favorite track of theirs, Malkmus'   Range Life  touched my life in a time when I was looking for answers.  By that, I mean, I was living in a hippie town and for years couldn't pinpoint why exactly all these scraggly pseudo hippies made me so dang pissed off.  Malkmus allayed my anger merely by recognizing his own confusion when it comes to hippies in this track.  In honor of his appearance today here at Amoeba San Francisco, here is the video for Range Life:



And here's another track that expresses some ambivalence about proto yuppie hippes from his first and fabulous self titled solo album.  It's a live performance of "Jenny & the Ess Dog":
