SF Weekly Letter June 11-17, 2015 


Because Washington functions so well: Why can DC's subway stay open until 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday and not BART? ["Night Train: Transportation officials weigh public- and private-sector alternatives to getting around town after midnight," Gary Moskowitz, News, 6/4/15]. Push the opening time on Saturday morning and Sunday morning forward, and extend the closing time. I mean DC does it, this isn't that difficult. Mark

Get off your ass and vote: We need an app that will make people get off of their lazy asses and vote ["Register Your Vote: A new mobile app introduces bite-size legislation," Antoinette Siu, Sucka Free City, 6/4/15]. Perhaps we could get 30 percent of the registered voters to show up next time? Richmondman

Both sides now: Don't you just love hearing cops like Humboldt County Sheriff Downey whining about the state legislature failing to enact regulations when intransigent and uncompromising lobbying by law enforcement has been the only real holdup?! ["Industry Fears: Small cannabis farmers told Gavin Newsom what the state's weed industry wants. Will they get it?," Chris Roberts, Chem Tales, 6/4/15.] Miles Monroe

Old dude discovers Millennials not so bad after all: Good article ["The Stone Foxes' Soft Side: Shannon Koehler puts his heart into the San Francisco band that's set to play the Great American Music Hall," Matt Saincome, Music, 6/4/15]. He sounds cool. I hate Millennials by and large. They can stick their Google glass up their Google ... ask me if I care. But, not everyone is the same, I reckon. I'll give these boys a listen. Maybe even a can of creamed corn. We'll see. (Jokes aside, thanks for doing that food drive stuff. It's nice.) squeegiestreak

  • 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.'"
