List: Fee for all 

Wednesday, Jan 13 2010

Last week, David Chiu, president of the Board of Supervisors, announced his intention to eliminate dozens of overly bureaucratic city fees. What are some of the fees targeted to be taken off San Francisco's books?

• $125 service fee for having your awareness raised

• $50 licensing fee for any medical marijuana dispensary that wants to play Bob Marley in the background

• $100 loitering fee for waiting more than a year for city government to solve a problem

• $75 educational fee for running on city streets for something other than the cure

• $60 vehicle fee for being smug about your bicycle

• $25 eWaste fee for starting a blog and not updating it

• $110 bandwagon fee for "greening" anything

• $30 convenience fee for using Muni rides as an opportunity to rant about something only you can see

• $200 ethics fee: one of many fines and punishments placed on city employees who have ethics

  • 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.'"
