We're Honored 

Two SF Weekly staff writers have been recognized in this year's Missouri Lifestyle Journalism Awards, a national competition sponsored by the journalism school at the University of Missouri-Columbia.

Staff writer Matt Smith received the first place fashion and design writing award for his June 24, 1998, story "Art on Two Wheels," which explored the dedication to style and craftsmanship exhibited by owners of custom-designed art bicycles.

Staff writer Lisa Davis was named a finalist in two categories. Her Aug. 5, 1998, feature story "The Fairfield Wives," an expose of the dubious medical practices of a Fairfield physician, was named a finalist for the Paul L. Myhre Award for best single story.

Davis was also a finalist in health and fitness reporting for her Sept. 10, 1997, story "Giving Away the Hospital," the first critical examination of the then-proposed merger between the UCSF and Stanford medical centers. Ironically, the UCSF-Stanford merger is again this week's cover story subject, as many of the very problems Davis presaged in her initial investigative piece have come to pass.

  • 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.'"
