  • Crime fighters and BFFs!

Here at SF Weekly, there's nothing we love as much as The Examiner's Law & Disorder crime-roundup page, where thugs, goons, punks, and broads batter the hell out of each other in headlines so lurid and purple they seemed to have been dictated by crotchety hobos.

Or make that where thugs et al. used to batter each other. Since the paper's recent change in ownership, Law & Disorder has become more housebroken each day. The headlines involve "suspect"s. Once in a while there's an "allegedly." And now, today, Law & Disorder reporters Mike Aldax and Rob Nagle are posed back-to-back in the classic mystery-solving stance of child detectives everywhere.

Or of Mary-Kate and Ashley.

Newspapers have to be bold to succeed these days, so we suggest The Examiner doll its crime-fighting duo up in some of these classic Olsen outfits:

  • 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.'"
