At San Francisco's City Hall, one eventually gets used to the sight of statuesque brides in frilly gowns and strappy sandals clomping through the metal detectors. But a fella with a two-foot-tall, traffic cone orange hat, a matching scarf and a gleeful Jack-O-Lantern smile?

No, he's not here to sing at the Board of Supervisors meeting.

The San Francisco Giants World Series trophy was on display today at City Hall, and hundreds of fans crashed the seat of municipal government to get a gander. Here are a few photos of the gathered throngs.

  • 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.'"
