As if you hadn't already had enough news of Dark Lord Murdoch wriggling his cybernetic tentacles into San Francisco, there's also this: SF-based financial news website MarketWatch (co-founded by former San Francisco Examiner editor Larry Kramer) is about to be absorbed into Murdoch's News Corp., as part of News Corp.'s $5.6 billion Dow Jones and Co. acquisition. I, for one, welcome our new overlord.

  • 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.'"
