No Pants Subway Ride in SF 

The plan, as announced on urbanprankster.com, was simple: Meet up at 2 p.m. Saturday with a few dozen strangers at Dalva in the Mission. Get liquored up. Take pants off and ride public transportation. (Read Ashley Harrell's full report.)

One by one, the lads and ladies sashayed through the 16th Street station's turn stall in boxers and panties.

"Is it underwear day?" asked a teenage girl in a wife-beater as the group descended into the subway. "Did I miss the memo?" Nobody really answered her, since pretending nothing was amiss was part of the hilarity.
The entourage packed an inbound train, causing two girls to complain that it smelled like weed, and that it was too hot. "I hope they get off soon," one girl said aloud.

If you touch my ass I will fu**ing punch you in the face," said an underwear-clad girl, after overhearing a lewd conversation from two male passengers. "Learn some manners boy.

The pants-less passengers made small talk for the most part. It turned out, a couple of them recognized each other from another event they had attended last year -- the masturbate-a-thon.

Earlier in the day, the group met outside Dalva in the Mission with plans to get liquored up. But the bar happened to be closed.

The more prepared attendees took swigs of pocketed flasks. Then the undressing began.

As the swarm crossed Valencia, it engulfed a blind man with his walking stick. He sensed the chaos, and innocently asked, "What's going on?" The crowd informed him of his surroundings, and the man laughed. "I missed all the fun," he said.

Of course, one of the Castro's famous nudists was in attendance, modestly clad in a shiny g-string.

  • 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.'"
