DJs at San Francisco's Pirate Cat Radio are wondering what's going on with the Mission station -- and whether it even exists at all -- after founder Daniel "Monkey" Roberts abruptly pulled the plug on things in a staff meeting earlier this month.

No one's quite sure who owns the station, or to whom their dues are going -- or even where Roberts is.

The issue began in September, when a Craiglist ad seemed to put the station up for sale. Check out the full story over on our news blog, the Snitch.  And also see our cover story about Monkey and Pirate Cat from last year.

  • 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.'"
