Even More Honors 

Two SF Weekly writers have received honors in the California Newspaper Publishers Association's 1998 statewide journalism competition. The awards were announced June 26.

Peter Byrne won first place for investigative reporting among the state's largest weekly papers. Byrne was honored for "Rewarding Failure," a two-part series published in December 1998, which detailed how sloppy management and sweetheart union contracts have dragged down San Francisco's Muni mass transit system.

Staff writer Lisa Davis won the second-place award for feature writing, also in the large weeklies category. Davis was honored for her August 1998 story "The Fairfield Wives," chronicling the bizarre medical practices and allegations of sexual impropriety that cost a Fairfield physician his medical license.

  • 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.'"
