Moving day.
  • Moving day.

Update 9:18 a.m.: Officer Gordon Shyy says all the homeless folks left peacefully on their own and there were no arrests.

Original story 7:55 a.m.: Police just informed us now that there's some "police activity" in the Financial District at this time as the cops and city officials clear out homeless camps.

We don't have much information at this time, but Officer Gordon Shyy tells us that police have descended on Market Street near Drumm and Spear streets where they are working with the Department of Public Works to clear out the homeless camps.

We'll tell you more when we know more.

  • 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.'"
