List: Why Is Gavin Newsom Leaving San Francisco? 

Wednesday, Jun 15 2011

• His work here is done: Care Not Cash was such a success that there are no more homeless people

• Bay to Breakers isn't as cool anymore

• Fucking hipsters

• The media made him cry

• Still trying to one-up Chris Daly

• Waaaay too many potholes. Somebody should do something about that

• It turns out a lot of people were only pretending to be his friend because he was the mayor

• In his heart, he always lived in Marin

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.'"
