  • Newt's personal fantasy isn't much different than ours in San Francisco

After Newt Gingrich trashed-talked the Bay Area, specifically San Francisco, we gave the  polyamorous Republican five really good reasons that he might fancy our fair city, despite the fact we are open to all things good.

Of course, we didn't think he would take that as an actual invite, but alas, here Gingrich comes.

Okay, so the mashed-potato snowman won't actually be stepping foot in our "fantasy land" as far as we know, but he will be close enough to give us the chills -- 20 miles down south in Burlingame where the average male resident also proudly dons a toupee.

According to his campaign, the presidential hopeful will be traveling here at the end of the month where he will make a cameo at the California Republican Convention, followed by a possible fundraiser.

Here's what we have to say about that: If Newt thinks he's going to shame the Bay Area and then shake us down for money, he's the one living in a fantasy land!

  • 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.'"
