  • Are Aubrey Huff -- and his beer and Rally Thong -- headed to San Jose's festivities?

For members of the San Francisco Giants hoping to spend their $318,000 World Series bonuses -- do you know the way to San Jose?

The team -- collectively, the entire team -- will serve as the honorary grand marshal of this year's San Jose Holiday parade on Sunday.

Somehow, we get the feeling Pat Burrell and Aubrey Huff won't be draining cans of Bud Lite while Huff brandishes his red thong underwear for the gathered masses this time 'round.

Our calls to the team and parade organizers inquiring just which players would be representing the World Champions have not yet been returned.

The Harlem Globetrotters will also be there -- but, we'll admit it, we haven't inquired after which individual players will put in an appearance.

Update, 10 a.m.:
SF Weekly has received word that Andres Torres and Sergio Romo will be representing the team in San Jose. Also, Eric Nemeth, the admirably proactive director of publicity for the Harlem Globetrotters, informed us that hoopsters Buckets Blakes, Firefly Fisher, and Dizzy Grant will be there. Sounds like a party.

  • 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.'"
