While it's not really surprising that Halloween has finally come to this, it's still sad: Trick or treating has become just another opportunity for advertising. San Francisco cartoonist Chris Onstad uses his brilliant online comic strip Achewood to expose the practice of hustling business cards along to children via Halloween candy. Is nothing sacred? What's next? Razor blades? Best line: "Holy Jesus Christ Is there a business card taped to this fucking candy?"

  • 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.'"
