SF Weekly Letters for March 31 - April 6, 2016 


Thanks for the click: Cynical shit posing as reporting from a "newspaper" that is mostly ads and bullshit ("BART's Political PR Blitz," Chris Roberts, Sucka Free City, 03/24/16). Go back to being a weed reporter; you suck at being a low rent Chronicle. SFWeeklySux

Same old police story: People who sell drugs near homeless shelters and treatment centers make life harder for folks who are actively trying to get help, and do so for their own personal profit ("On Heroin Users, Mayor Calls the Cops," Chris Roberts, Chem Tales, 3/24/16). The police should go after them. Notamaroon

SF on the rocks: We don't see the heroin problem in our neighborhood, we see the meth problem. And that problem includes needles, broken windows on cars, attempted break-ins in apartments and houses, human feces on the sidewalks and streets, left-behind clothes, and general mess. Mess. Absolute mess. Talk about this problem. Because THIS is what we see in our neighborhood. Joe Wicht

Revenge of the olds: I'm guessing the reviewer missed the part where this show was billed as an acoustic or mostly acoustic performance, ergo the mellower song selections ("Live Review: I Was The Youngest Person at a Smashing Pumpkins Show And It Was Super Weird," Elle Coxon, All Shook Down, 3/28/16)? This wasn't a band "playing it safe" and it certainly wasn't a "crowd full of people no longer interested in any song as ferocious as 'Bullet with Butterfly Wings.' WTF is the story with SF Weekly concert reviews lately? If the only angle is going to be, "I'm young, look at all these old folks listening to their old music," why bother? Danimalssf

Age before subtlety: You may be young, but you're also an asshole. Werewrwewer

This is my cocktail, this is my bar: Comparing Harper & Rye to Hi-Lo is like comparing peaches to lemons ("Bar Fight: The Hi-Lo Club vs. Harper & Rye," Mike Vangel, SFoodie, 3/25/16). They are completely different bars. The cocktails and atmosphere at Hi Lo attract real connoisseurs while H&R is designed to cater to the young tech industry. H&R is never busy on a Wednesday night, very few bars on Polk are. Both establishments have their positives & negatives but to say that H&R staff are more qualified than the seasoned tenders at Hi Lo is a joke. Frisco's Barkeep

Drinking to violence: I effing hate Harpers. Just lines of selfish good-for-nothings thinking they're cool. Uber cabs clog up and stop ON the pedestrian crossing waiting for whoever inside to hurry up. I'm going to webcam this for my supervisor before throwing a brick at the m/f cab blocking the way — be warned. local dude

The looks have it: It looks to be excessive force, that's for sure ("Public Defender: Deputies Involved in Beating Lied; Must Be Charged," Chris Roberts, The Snitch, 3/24/16). How many minutes allotted to beat a person before the police have to stop, or the police move from proper restrained to police brutality? Rodney King should have been an exemplar that never went away. Prolix

  • 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.'"
