In an interesting confluence of tweeting and tweaking, cops at the SFPD Northern Station announced a meth bust -- via Twitter.

"plainclothes

officers made a great drug bust, got a half-pound of meth and over 5

grand off of two dealers, on the 100 block of fell," reads the Tweet.

Sadly, the captain's staff at Northern Station didn't tweet out a report number. But police spokesman Samson Chan turned up the following: On Sept. 11 at around 9 in the evening, a pair of police made a routine check-up of a man on probation living in the Oak Hotel at 174 Fell. When the man opened his door, piles of cash and the drugs were in plain view. Simple as that.

The 100 block of Fell, incidentally, is a hop, skip, and a jump from City Hall, and throwing distance from the Newton Tharp School, a city landmark.

  • 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.'"
