It's Thursday, SF. Elvis died 30 years ago today. The Rock the Bells stage in McCovey Cove gets a little bigger, scalped tix hit $100, and we all shake our heads at the news that at least 300 are confirmed dead in the big, shallow Peru quake. In related news, local scientists learn a little more about out own big, shallow, dangerous fault.

--Two career flashers got some time.

--And the unstoppable news-juggernaut Henry K. Lee reports on two mysteriously found dead at a home in Hayward.

Lastly, thanks to SFist for uncovering this semi-cool SF Murder Map and Log. Ask not for whom the bells tolls, it tolls for theee. (And when it tolls, your ass will be on San Francisco Crime.) -d2

  • 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.'"
