Rumor Mill: Historic Day For Gay Marriage in May?

Over at the Huffington Post, Ryan J. Davis has a piece about the impending ruling on gay marriage due from the California court, and it's creating quite a stir on the internets. The court has until June 2 to hand down their decision, but according to "sources wishing to remain anonymous in the California Court System," they may just say "We do what we want" and issue the ruling on May 28, against anti-gay marriage Prop 22.

The Family Research Council, which is one of those innocuous sounding groups that wants religion back in the classroom and the ladies back in the kitchen, is worried enough to have launched a ballot initiative for a constitutional amendment against gay marriage in California. Schwarzenegger reportedly openly panned the FRC's actions when addressing the Log Cabin Republicans, saying "I will always be there to fight against that." Which is interesting, because Schwarzenegger has twice vetoed bills that support gay marriage.

Could California be making a bold move toward legalizing gay marriage by the end of next month? Start speculating! Wildly! --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.'"
