If Monday alone wasn't depressing enough, get a load of this: cooks, bartenders, waiters and waitresses have the second highest rates of depression of any full-time employees, at 10.3 percent, topped only by personal care workers, which includes people who care for children, the severely disabled and the elderly, at almost 11 percent.

But there is a bright side, even for suicidal waiters: the overall depression rate for full-time workers of any stripe, seven percent, is still much lower than that of the unemployed, at 12.7 percent.

  • 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.'"
