Keep your eyes open for the latest film crew roaming the streets of San Francisco -- The Diary of a Teenage Girl has started filming in S.F., according to Variety. And while you know Kristen Wiig from a comedic background, don't expect many laughs from this movie.

If you're not familiar with the graphic novel of the same name that the film is based on, it's the diary pages of a 15-year-old girl traversing a very rocky adolescence in San Francisco during the 1970s -- her mother's an alcoholic, she sleeps with her mother's boyfriend, she's raped, abused, and ends up on the streets of the City -- the story unfolding through a comic narrative and illustrations.

A turbulent time for the protagonist and San Francisco -- the Zodiac Killer, the Zebra Murders, the assassination of Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk, the relocation of the Jonestown church form Geary to Guyana and the mass murder-suicide that followed.

SFist already noted one Instagram-er caught a glimpse of Alexander Skarsgard out at Ocean Beach in some very blue, short shorts. We're sure to see many more shots of Skarsgard and Wiig in lovely polyester blends before they leave.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
