Crossbows on the Green: Suburban Poaching in Redwood City

Ted Nugent would be proud: Time magazine reports that poachers with crossbows took to a public park in nearby Redwood City, where they built a tree stand, scattered bait, and waited for black-tailed deer to wander by so they could bag themselves a nice trophy, and one would hope, at least some venison steaks.

Of course, hauling the guns and crossbows out to the park or the golf course seems inevitable in an age when 79 percent of the U.S. population lives in urban areas.

  • 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.'"
