Rescue crews are searching for at least one person off the Marin County coast after a sailboat sank Monday morning. As of this afternoon, no body had been recovered, according to Lt. Sean Kelly of the Coast Guard.

Authorities said they received a distress signal from a 30-foot boat named "Alma" around 4:15 a.m. The agency was combing the waters by Kirby Cove near the Golden Gate Bridge when it spotted the boat partially submerged near the rocks at Yellow Bluff. The boat eventually sank.

Anyone with information on the incident is encouraged to contact the Sector San Francisco Command Center at (415) 399-3520.

  • 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.'"
