The "fantastic" (The New Yorker) debate series Intelligence Squared U.S. makes its San Francisco debut to debate whether tech companies should be required to help the government access their customers' data in a situation like last year's dispute over the San Bernardino shooter's phone. John Yoo, former Bush administration Justice Department official, and Stewart Baker, former Assistant Secretary at Homeland Security, debate in support of the government. Professor Catherine Crump, former staff attorney at the ACLU, and Michael Chertoff, former Secretary of Homeland Security and architect of the Patriot Act, debate against them.

  • 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.'"
