The Oakland Tribune reported yesterday that framed photographs of late Your Black Muslim Bakery leader Yusuf Ali Bey that once hung in the now infamous hot-fish-sandwich-dispensary will go up for auction March 25 at 11 a.m. Bey died of cancer in 2003, while facing charges of raping underage girls. His two successors met rapid and untimely deaths, and the third was arrested under suspicious of vandalizing two West Oakland liquor stores. The bakery was raided Aug. 3 by police for connections to several crimes, including the killing of Oakland Post editor Chauncey Bailey, who was investigating the activities of the bakery.

  • 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.'"
