Bush Pardons a Bunch of Drug Dealers

Bush handed out a round of presidential pardons on March 24 and, perhaps not surprisingly, a number of them were drug dealers. Five to be exact, according to the blog Legal Trade. One was distributing a mysteriously unnamed "controlled substance", one was selling pot, one was importing heroin, one was selling crack, and one over-achiever was in possession of both cocaine and marijuana. Do you think Bush offered to let these dudes crash on his couch for a couple days after he freed them? My favorite pardon went to a pair of criminals, Jerry and Thomas Moldenhauer of Colorado Springs, who were convicted of "knowingly selling migratory bird parts." Ew. –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.'"
