Help your favorite fake religion inventor, L. Ron Hubbard celebrate his birthday! A group called Anonymous will be staging a party of sorts for Scientology this Saturday, March 15. The event is called "Operation Party Hard" and is part of an annual protest meant to shed light on the church's "corruption, and abuse of its members and critics" according to a press release. The day was chosen for its proximity to Hubbard's actual birthday, which is the thirteenth. March 13 is also the same day Scientologist Ellen Perkins was stabbed to death by her schizophrenic son in 2003. Her son had never received medical treatment because the church denounces psychiatry. The San Francisco protest will take place outside Scientology headquarters at 701 Montgomery around 11 a.m. There will be cake. UPDATE: Boingboing has a post up about how a person claiming to be involved in Scientology has tracked down members of Anonymous and posted their personal info online. Those crazy Scientologists! –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.'"
