  • A feral cat devours crime lab evidence.
Over the weekend, the Chron reported that a band of feral cats has taken over part of the beleagured crime lab. You might be thinking things couldn't get much worse around there, but as it turns out, a series of additional, heartbreaking SNAFUs recently occurred:

  • A Muni bus crashed into it.
  • Jennifer Siebel Newsom held a mud wrestling competition but forgot the mud, so everyone wrestled in crime evidence.
  • The San Francisco Bay Guardian filed a lawsuit against it. 
  • With nothing better to do, Aaron Peskin showed up in a Speedo and wrecked the place, Tasmanian devil-style.
  • Because it was raining Sunday, the Giants' game was moved inside the lab (on the plus side, though, everyone loved the inaugural Free Cocaine Day).

  • A tiger escaped from the zoo and mauled some evidence -- including evidence

    implicating said tiger in several prior maulings.

  • Septuagenarian Carol Doda revived her striptease act on top of a lab table.
  • The sea lions from Pier 39 showed up and had a turf war with the feral


  • Chris Daly bought it, evicted everyone, and converted it into an investment property.

  • Another Muni bus crashed into it.

  • 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.'"
