Villains, which if I remember correctly opened up in the space of one of the Haight's last record shops not called Amoeba, was (in my mind) a final, resounding end to the Haight that was, and a new beginning to the Haight that is – being, a pseudo-historical, trendy strip mall that can support stores that push $150 jeans and the like. For those who live for $150 pairs of (insert name brand here) jeans, this the place to go. $150 jean Valhalla. Raver central. Jackets that come with extra pockets for your cell, your pager, your PDA, your laptop, your vial of E, your girlfriend's cell, your iPod, your backup iPod, your oversized headphones, keys to your Hummer, and yo’ mama. I heard they were thinking of opening shop in the Mission next to Amnesia, but luckily 826 is expanding to that spot instead. Let's hope they stay put where they are for as long as possible.
