Today Shane Bauer passes the second anniversary of his birth since he was put in Evin Prison in Tehran. U.S. President Barack Obama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, Muhammad Ali, and even Sean Penn have called for Bauer and his friend Josh Fattal's release, but they're still in there.

Tonight, a fundraiser at RayKo Photo includes films about the hikers; an appearance by Sarah Shourd, Bauer's fiancée, who was imprisoned and then released; a slideshow of Bauer's work; and more -- read about it on our sister blog the Snitch.

  • 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.'"
