Occupy Gets Its Hands Dirty (Slideshow)

Posted By on Tue, Apr 24, 2012 at 8:15 AM

On Earth Day, occupiers across the Bay Area marched to UC Berkeley to clear out an empty tract of land that they say will become a new community farm. Protesters got to work tilling and planting on the occupied property, with chickens standing by their side. Already, some 10,000 seeds have been planted.

Naturally, police arrived and threatened to haul everyone to jail, but only after we were able to grab some cool shots of these productive protesters.

  • 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.'"
