Earthquake!!!

Um, did anyone else feel that?

Yeah, the big red one.

About an hour ago, I was sitting on my bed chuckling at the fake picture of rifle-toting Sarah Palin in her American flag bikini when my bed started shaking. I turned around quickly, worried some disapproving Republican had jumped through my open window and landed on my bed, but I couldn't see anybody. (A brief and terrifying image of Kevin Bacon's character from Hollow Man entered my mind). But then a roommate directed me to http://quake.usgs.gov/recenteqs/ -- a website that documents recent earthquakes -- and sure enough there had been a 4.0 in Alamo.

What do you guys say? Should we San Franciscans go fight the earthquake in Alamo so we don' t have to fight it at home?--Ashley Harrell

  • 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.'"
