Last night, Mary Anne Hobbs took a quick break from influencing worldwide tastes in dance music with her BBC Radio One Experimental show to make a quick stop at 103 Harriet to give San Francisco seismologists something new to worry about.
Mary Anne has been instrumental in transforming dubstep from an underground London curiosity into a full-blown worldwide movement, giving extra-special love to the Bay Area along the way. It’s no surprise, then, that her arrival was greeted with open arms and wobbly knees. Mary Anne responded, in turn, with a pair of ruptured eardrums for each of the evening’s revellers.
Over the course of the evening, Mary Anne rattled off a litany of dancefloor crushing bassgasms, raised the roof a bit, did a very cute DJ dance, and all-in-all appeared to be having a splendid time.
In case you didn’t notice, Mary Anne is also devastatingly hot — like a night in Cuba. An informal survey of the evening’s clubgoers revealed that approximately 98.2% of males and 82.3% of females present would “totally do her” given the chance. Of this number, approximately 72.3% expressed their desire for Mary Anne to “have [their] babies, omg.”
Mary Anne was unavailable for comment, but one can only assume that she would be flattered by the survey’s findings.
