If you were to take a tour of the Google headquarters in Mountain View, you'd get a chance to see on their screens the list of search words people around the world are entering in.

For the more computer-savvy, here are some Google search tricks, including having it recognize faces, using it to check out sites that are being blocked at work, or finding free MP3s.—James Y Lee

  • 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 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.'"
