Supervisor Chris Daly:
Round about the crockpot go
In the gnarly organics throw
Soup in bowl of sourdough
Hair ripp'd from bear in the Castro
Can you get 'em in Fairfield? I think not.
Toss those first in the fucking pot

All Supervisors:
Double, double, lawyers and muddle
Gavin's gone — progressives huddle!
Supervisor John Avalos:
AT&T Park garlic fries
In the crockpot, there it lies
Willie's hat, Clint Reilly's cash
Dump in Aaron Peskin's stash
The Rally Thong — bring it forthwith
What the hell — throw in Alex Smith!
For a progressive with motives ulterior
I think we'll need Tom Ammiano's gay posterior

All Supervisors:
Double, double, lawyers and muddle
Gavin's gone — progressives huddle!

Supervisor David Campos:
Behold our creation! By my authority
We'll wield the might of a progressive majority
Liver of organizer, SEIU
Kaffiyeh scarf and huarache shoe
Happy Meal toy of a whiner youthful
You're too fat, kid, lemme be truthful
Add Tabasco until the potion's hot
We're brewing a mayor in the pot

All Supervisors:
Double, double, lawyers and muddle
Gavin's gone — progressives huddle!

Supervisor Chris Daly:
Cool it with some free-trade chai
The charm is firm and it gets you high

  • 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.'"
