PETA will be so proud! San Francisco-based ladies' clothier Bebe has vowed to stop buying animal fur products beginning in January. But wait! It seems PETA is actually not proud. On the contrary, it sounds really pissed. Why? Because Bebe isn't dropping rabbit fur fast enough and will continue to "make money off butchered bunnies' backs." Hey, nice alliteration!

According to its press release, PETA is demanding that Bebe "follow the lead of competitors like Polo Ralph Lauren, J. Crew, Forever 21, and Wet Seal," and stop all fur sales immediately. If they don't comply, PETA is promising to deliver more than 280,000 angry antifur activists for a protest and boycott campaign beginning Thanksgiving week. There's nothing like a protest to get us all in the holiday mood.

  • 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.'"
