Occupy Oakland and Oakland police have been playing the blame game with who's responsible for the chaos and violence that erupted in downtown Saturday night. And while it continues to be a chicken-or-the-egg debate, police can say with some certainty that occupiers are responsible for the break-in at City Hall Saturday night

Oakland police released some surveillance that they say refutes claims by protesters that the doors to City Hall were left open, meaning there was no illegal break-in. In this footage, it appears as though someone pried the doors open with a tool, allowing a group of protesters to rush the building.

  • 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.'"
