You may have seen Urbane's San Francisco map, in which areas of the city are named by what they are known for instead of their actual name (for example, the Sunset district was translated into, "Well, the cab rejected me again, claiming I live too far from everything else.").

Urbane has recently released their latest map for the "Yay Area," renaming every city from Novato to Los Gatos with what they've observed in that particular area. We're definitely only going to refer to the East Bay Hills as "Hills of Income Separation" from now on.

  • 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.'"
