This morning, the National Transportation Safety Board has gathered at the state's Capitol where it's releasing the findings of what caused Asiana Flight 214 to crash at San Francisco International Airport last year.

On July 6, 2013, the Boeing 777 was approaching SFO when the plane crashed into the seawall, killing three, including two teenagers on their way to a school trip in Los Angeles, and injuring hundreds 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.'"
