From AP: The San Francisco Environment Department (rather than environment-al for some reason) is setting up what's being described as an "X-ray device" in Union Square Wednesday so worried parents can have their children's toys screened for dangerous (hence the Chucky picture) toxic contaminants, lead and cadmium among them. Because nothing says "Happy holidays" like re-creating the airport security experience in an open-air environment!

  • 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.'"
