Two top San Francisco Examiner editors have left the paper for a new media venture -- a magazine for the Web. David Talbot, assistant managing editor for arts and entertainment, and Foreign/National Editor Andrew Ross aren't talking about their new project yet, and refuse to confirm that some of their seed money came from Apple computers. ... "The Largest Newspaper in Northern California," our beloved San Francisco Chronicle, has dipped below the 500,000-circulation mark, according to a news story appearing in its own pages last week about the sale of Lesher Communications. The Chronicle's circulation now stands at 499,526, which will soon be corrected to 499,527 because Chatterbox started subscribing to "The Voice of the West" late last month, and fervently hopes that the Chron locates 74 more readers to put it above the magic 500,000 mark. ...

  • 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.'"
