Curbed SF linked to the new plans for the Transbay Transit Center yesterday.The center will be designed by Hines and Pelli Clarke Pelli associates. The plans call for a "five and half acre public park that will sit atop the new transit center" functioning as a "green roof" and an "elegant" 12,000-foot office tower that will become the tallest building west of Chicago. Renderings of what the building will look like can be found on the company's web site. It's basically a towering glass techno penis that may or may not serve as an escape pod for Scientologists when the end is nigh and brings our city ever closer to the goal of looking like a futuristic city from a movie made in 1981. -Andy Wright

  • 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.'"
