  • David Chiu is going where no candidate has gone before

Supervisor David Chiu met with with Ed Lee yesterday for the first time since Lee jumped into the race for mayor. Needless to say, it was an awkward moment for Chiu, who likened it to getting coffee with a cheating lover.

"It was like meeting with an ex-girlfriend who you had trusted for the first time after the breakup," he tells SF Weekly.

But like any freshly wounded man, Chiu is picking up the pieces and looking to get back on the horse  -- the election horse, that is. He's making a fresh start with a new phase of his campaign he is dubbing "Where's David Chiu?"

"I want to go places no other mayoral candidate has gone before," he tells us.

So where are these places we might expect to find Chiu? Here are our thoughts:


1. At the foot of your bed.

2. Playing Donkey Kong with Chris Daly in the Tenderloin.

3. Playing violin inside the BART station.

4.Under a dumpster at 47th and Kirkham.

5. Driving your Muni bus.

6. At Dolores Park alongside a man in a Chewbacca costume (wait -- he did that already)!

7. On Craigslist, looking for more roommates.

8. On the dance floor at Trigger with Bevan Dufty.

9. Panhandling on Haight Street.

10. Delivering medical marijuana on his bike.

  • 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.'"
