All Tolled 

Wednesday, Dec 3 2008

This week, the Chronicle reported that the Board of Supervisors is considering charging $3 "congestion tolls" to drive in certain parts of the city. Here are other tolls we'd like to see.

Star Tattoo Toll: $5 per star. $15 if it's shooting. $20 if it's a nautical star. $30 if you think it says something about you.

New Band Toll: $500 to come here and make it. Half of that fee will be refunded when you give up and become a DJ.

Skinny Pants Toll: Time to dip into the trust fund, hipster boy. $800.

2 a.m. Tenderloin Toll: All your money goes to the guy with the gun.

Protester Toll: Your first 10 protests are free. Any more and you're just trying to get laid, dude. $50.

Track Bike Toll: A $100 fee to offset the idiocy of riding a bike with no brakes in a city known for its insanely steep hills.

Vegan Toll: $200 for arguing that what you do or don't eat makes you any better than other people.

  • 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.'"
