es, trains are running a bit behind, but this time you can't say it has to do with freedom of speech, or lack thereof.

BART is reporting up to eight-minute delays for some East Bay-bound commuters due to a car crash on Interstate 580 this afternoon.

It all started at about 2:37 p.m. when a car and a big rig traveling eastbound collided, interfering with BART's right-of-way, according to BART officials.

BART had to run single-track trains from Castro Valley to the Dublin/Pleasanton station, causing delays between three and eight minutes. All other trains are currently running on time.

  • 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.'"
