It might sound like a joke, but Tim Draper is hella serious about his plan for California. The venture capitalist is pushing a ballot measure to split our one, gloriously-golden state into six different states. As absurd as this might sound, he did get his locations right: Fresno and most of the valley would be part of Central California, and those people up north who've been trying to secede for generations would finally get Jefferson. San Francisco would fall into the newly formed state of Silicon Valley (and we thought there was already a tech backlash — strap in for some real protests if this thing goes through). The man himself will appear tonight at Tim Draper: The Case for 6 Californias to explain the plan. The program says he'll be taking questions. We want to know which state gets to claim the word "hella."

  • 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.'"
