The Monterey Bay Aquarium has gathered conclusive evidence that great white sharks participate in their own version of Spring Break. The aquarium has captured and released three white sharks equipped with monitoring devices, according to an article in today's Chronicle. The devices show that after release, the sharks quickly head south. One female shark made it to Santa Barbara, while a male released in Feb, swam to Baja before heading to party central, Cabo. Aquarium spokesman Ken Peterson said it's not unusual for young white sharks to spend time off the coast of Southern California and the Baja Peninsula. –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.'"
