SF Extension Cord Provided By: Prysmian!

Posted By on Wed, Sep 5, 2007 at 2:11 PM

That's right, the foreign consortium just won the bid for a $125 million San Francisco submarine energy cable from Pittsburg to The City. Basically the City needs MORE POWER and has decided to run a cable along the length of the Bay. I was talking to a diver out there working on the project and he said trenching the hole for the cable was no small feat. There's tons of

shit on the bottom of the bay. Cars that have fallen off tankers. Pieces of the Bay Bridge. Pipeline projects to nowhere. Even vintage bottles of whiskey from the 19th century have been dug up. And don't even ask me how they thread this huge extension cord underneath the existing pipelines and cables down there.

  • 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.'"
