Bored of the Supervisors 

Wednesday, Jan 12 2011

New members of the Board of Supervisors have been sworn in. How is the new Board of Supervisors different from the old one?

• Earnest lefty rather than profane lefty

• Already demoralized

• Not as interesting at parties

• Even more representative of the brilliant rainbow of diversity, except insofar as they're virtually all lawyers

• Absurdly telegenic

• Focused like a laser on punishing their enemies

• Determined never to have to pick a mayor again

• Better at feigning interest in ordinary people

• Somehow even less able to laugh at themselves

  • 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.'"
