Dog Bites

Outside the Box With the Chron! Oh, Wait ...
Lately, after having triumphed in a protracted and bitter battle with the Chronicle's home delivery service, ultimately succeeding in getting our daily subscription canceled, Dog Bites has been feeling a little guilty.

Even though we've decided we prefer to keep up with the city via the Channel 2 10 o'Clock News -- this way, we can combine our intake of information with our ongoing study of Leslie Griffith's wardrobe of powder-blue suits -- we can't help but wonder if we've been responsible, in our small way, for a certain loss of momentum at the paper of record. On sleepless nights, we reminded ourselves that ours was only one of 31,000 subscription terminations the paper suffered in just six months of 1998, but it wasn't much comfort.

So we were relieved when a source over at Fifth and Mission supplied us with a copy of the newsroom's internal newsletter. The Chron has a plan! At least, we think so ....

  • 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.'"
