  • Co-op workers voted to scrap the 20-percent-off coupons, redeemable Tues.-Thurs.
Let the outrage begin. After Mission Loc@l reported today that Rainbow Grocery workers voted to kill the store-clogging midweek discounts, at least one unnamed worker is telling SF Weekly reporter Lauren Smiley that getting rid of the 20-percent discounts is a mistake. Smiley:
The worker said she thinks getting rid of the discount is a major mistake: "It's been a community thing. The customers are happy when they get [the coupons]." She thought that Whole Foods is probably celebrating the news, hoping to nab some of the customers who will no longer have an incentive to go to the locally owned Rainbow.

  • 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.'"
