List: Jeff Adachi's Punishment 

Wednesday, Jul 28 2010

San Francisco politicians with ties to organized labor are trying to punish Public Defender Jeff Adachi because he supports pension reform. In addition to cutting his budget, how are they trying to punish him?

• Going to court and testifying against his favorite defendants

• Sending him really bad vibes

• Writing terrible laws he'll have to defend people against

• Not inviting him to all the cool committee meetings

• Holding a public hearing — yelling

• Making the sign of the cross when he walks by

• Waiting until he needs a plumber: That's when they'll strike

• Passing him notes saying Supervisor Michela Alioto-Pier "likes" him, when she doesn't

• Scathing editorial in the Guardian about how he's not a "true progressive" — just scathing

• "Running out" of the fair trade coffee whenever he's at City Hall

  • 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.'"
