Paula Tejeda, Chile Lindo's embattled "Girl from Empanada," is among local merchants calling for a small business rally and press conference to highlight what they deem unfair targeting by disability lawyer Thomas Frankovich, who currently has more than 150 lawsuits filed locally on behalf of one plaintiff.

Tejeda closed her tiny Mission shop in mid-August, after Frankovich, representing wheelchair user Craig Yates, lodged a complaint against the empanada maker's landlords for lack of disability access. Chile Lindo reopened days later, but Tejeda wouldn't allow any customers into the shop.

The rally takes place tomorrow (Thurs., Sept. 9) at 4 p.m. the 24th Street BART station, 24th St. at Mission.

  • 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.'"
