  • Man missing after Giants game could be in the Bay

The Coast Guard spent the night above the bay, looking for a man that may or may not have fallen into the water after drinking too much at the Giants game last night.

According to ABC News, the man's friend said they had parked their car at Pier 32 near AT&T Park. After watching the Giants play, the two intoxicated men went back to the pier and stood at the end, near the water.

The man's friend said he looked away for a few seconds, and when he looked back, his buddy was gone.

However, nobody actually saw the man fall into the water, so police couldn't confirm that he's in there. But that's where they are presuming he is.

Helicopters flew around the bay all night, searching for the man, who has yet to turn up. Crews took a break this morning after doing a final lap over the water at about 4:30 a.m.

A second helicopter crew was planning to search around Pier 40 this morning. Police are also walking the piers, looking for the man.

Here's what ABC caught on video.

  • 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.'"
