Welcome to this week's Monday Morning Hangover. The mimosa headache still beats fresh behind our eyes, yet we bring it every Monday at 9 a.m.(ish).

I'm your web editor, David Downs.

Let's start with the funny. Two words: Anime Dorks (see above). It's one thing to like Samurai Shamploo, it's another to dress up like Mugen and head to Japantown. Peep the fresh flicks.

Now, ... what else happened this weekend? Norman Mailer died. Punch an asshole out for him, eh? And aside from the Japantown Anime Fest, San Francisco also saw a perfect storm of Fests. We had the Green Fest, the Japanese Film Festival, the Korean Film Festival, the International Animation Festival AND the aforementioned Japantown Anime Festival. Remember people, this land belongs to Asia -- we just rent here.

Nevermind the fests, we also caught Feist at Herbst Theater (links later), Ben Harper at the Paramount (links later), Saviours and Witchcraft at Slims (links later), and Redd Kross (links later). Kind of a metal weekend, from what we can remember.

On the schedule this week:

Today SF Government intends to idle away your tax dollars on Veteran's Day nooners and Asthma Task Force.

Tuesday, BetterKnowAnSFBlog profiles another great SF net-stitution.

Wednesday we will digest our weekly print edition for ya.

Thursday we look at all the free stuff you can do over the weekend in a segement we call: Free Stuff To Do In SF This Weekend.

Friday involves the Pre-Party.

And, of course, we will be at more great shows like Of Montreal (tonight) the ColdWarKids at the Warfield (Saturday), Jay Reatard at 12 Galaxies (Friday), and the Miss Trannyshack Pageant 2 (Saturday).

See you next Monday with another hangover, SF. It was worth it.

MP3 from Six Organs of Admittance, take us out.

  • 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.'"
