KTVU news is reporting that 19 students took over the San Francisco State student union in the predawn hours. At least two protesters have been arrested, with unconfirmed reports that they were pepper-sprayed by police.

A masked protester interviewed on television claimed this action was taken in solidarity with 11 students the university is charging $744 apiece  for the Dec. 9 occupation of the school's business building.

That demonstration required police to smash windows to gain entry to the building before arresting 25 people.

  • 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.'"
