Bank of America is earning plenty of bad press after it rudely sent a piece of junk mail to a San Francisco writer addressing her as "Lisa Is A Slut McIntire."

McIntire's mother, who named her daughter, was first to catch the insulting error when she received the junk mail addressed to her daughter at home. Her mother immediately sent her daughter a text, which she later posted on Twitter:

Now for the letter Lisa got: Now you ask, how the hell did this happen? Apparently, it's an offer for a Bank of America credit card for Golden Key International Honour Society. McIntire explains on Twitter that "BofA is a big sponsor of Golden Key's scholarships, so they have some kind of arrangement for members' information." She later tweeted at BofA pointing out that her middle name in fact is not "Is a Slut" but before she did that, she had some fun with it: Now for BofA's reply: Needless to say, McIntire is taking "slutgate" as she calls it, pretty well: H/t: SFist

  • 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.'"
