Packed into a slammed 21 Hayes, your humble narrator looked up and noticed a most unexpected fellow Muni patron: Nosy French thespian Gerard Depardieu.

Okay, not really. It's just the dude on an Oxfam advertisement. And most of you probably think he doesn't even look all that much like Depardieu. But while American audiences are familiar with the French actor's paunchy, middle-aged incarnation, he was quite a rugged young man. And he looked a hell of a lot like the above dude.

  • 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.'"
