The San Francisco Medical Examiner's office has released the identity of the second of three men murdered in the first weekend of 2011: Charles Harrison, a 41-year-old San Franciscan.

Harrison was gunned down in front of the New Century Theater on Larkin near O'Farrell after he quarreled with another man, according to the San Francisco Police Department. When he turned to walk away from the suspect, he was shot twice in the torso. The shooter is described as a black man between ages 20 and 27.

Larry Lacy, just 20 years old, was shot to death on Turk near Taylor on Saturday afternoon. He was the first homicide victim of 2011.

  • 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.'"
