Update: The streets are opened up and the suspicious device turned out to be a grenade, which was removed safely. So ... nothing to worry about.

San Francisco police just now alerted us to an incident over in the Mission District: a "suspicious device" was found at about 8:15 a.m. and the bomb squad is on its way to investigate.

According to Officer Gordon Shyy, the device was found on the 3100 block of 16th Street; the entire block has been closed off to all cars and pedestrians.

And yes, your Muni bus is being rerouted, too.

We'll let you know when it's all clear.

  • 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.'"
