What could be more annoying than an Occupy or Anonymous protest? How about an Occupy and Anonymous protest together.

The two anti-government groups are planning a joint action at Fruitvale BART station at 5 p.m. today, which means you East Bay-bound folks best find another way home.

Anonymous says it's been way too long since its last weekly protest at BART, aimed to draw attention to the transit agency's heavy-handed police force. However, the only thing those weekly protests drew last year was a lot of anger from tired commuters.

In a recent letter to BART, the group again calls the agency's police force "unprofessional and violent."

So one year later, here's what Anonymous has to say to the BART police:





But because a letter never suffices, Anonymous and Occupiers say they

will be there to tell you in person exactly how they feel. And for the

record, today's protest will also mark the first anniversary

of Anonymous' much-dreaded weekly BART protests, where protesters packed

stations week after week, holding up trains, pissing off commuters, and

generally accomplishing nothing.



See you tonight for this birthday bash -- no gifts, please.

  • 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.'"
