List: How S.F. Residents Want to Fix the City Budget 

Wednesday, Mar 23 2011

It's time to deal with the city budget, so Mayor Ed Lee has announced that he will hold town hall meetings in every district to get public input on how to close the huge deficit. What feedback is he likely to get from ordinary San Franciscans?

• "I'd like to read you a poem I wrote about budgets."

• "Math is oppressive, and doesn't represent the true diversity of San Francisco."

• "Are there snacks? Someone told me there would be snacks."

• "Can we talk about off-leash dogs instead?"

• "Hold on — you're not the mayor I paid for!"

• "What if we plant a community garden?"

• "The public library system is engaged in an antidemocratic coup and must be stopped!"

• "You need to give more tax breaks to corporations that make promises. That always works."

• "Free Palestine NOW!"

• "San Francisco will die a union town."

    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.'"
