Pete's Brewing Co. of Palo Alto, brewers of Pete's Wicked Ale, intend to market its beer in Canada, England, Australia, and beyomd - basically everywhere English is spoken. But there are limits to the brewer's export ambitions. "I don't think 'wicked' would play well in Korea," company president Mark Bozzini told the Business Times...From the "We Tried, But We Blew It Department" comes this 1868 founding statement by San Francisco Chronicle establishers Charles and M.H. de Young, which the Chron runs in its Web site: "We propose to publish a bold, bright, fearless, and truly indepedent newspaper, independent in all things, neutral in nothing," the two young publishers declared...There's a thin line between self-reference and self-aggrandizement - a line that the San Francisco Bay Guardian erases every week. The June 28 issue of the city's other weekly contains no less than 21 annoying self-references in its news stories. There appears to be an institutional rule over there that no story can go more than 300 words before the obligatory citation "told the Bay Guardian," or some lesser variant, is inserted.

  • 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.'"
