Redux In the Richmond, Part II: Starbucks Out Again

Posted By on Thu, Jan 24, 2008 at 9:00 AM

Well, that didn't take long: Last week behemoth java-slingers Starbucks was found to have wiggled its way into the Richmond with an under-the-radar Safeway kiosk, despite last year's smackdown by the Board of Supervisors. But word comes today that the chain has indeed shuttered its newly-revealed location "following complaints to The City from shoppers and neighborhood residents." Safeway sent a letter to customers Tuesday explaining that they had not applied for a permit to open the kiosk.

  • 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.'"
