AMA Supercross: We don’t follow it. All we know are the barest of essentials — that it is like a motorcycle race in a phone booth, that there is thunder thunder thunder, and that you, like Walt Whitman, will witness the great breadth of humanity in the parking lot, since it is the only AMA stop in Northern California. (Welcome, people of Antioch!) We do know, however, that in the past 10 years the yearly title has been batted back and forth among just four people: Jeremy McGrath, Ricky Carmichael, Chad Reed, and James Stewart Jr. This year, expect it to go to either Stewart or Reed (the others are retired, possibly), though in January this new kid, Ryan Dungey — let’s call him “the rookie” — beat both of them to win in Phoenix. Dungey is also currently on top of the points race, looks like Zack from Saved by the Bell, pisses oil, and eats screws.

  • 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.'"
