An Associated Press article from today reports a stabbing incident that took place at a Fullerton movie theatre Sunday night. The movie showing was The Signal, a horror film in which people are prompted to kill by electronic devices. The significance of the plot line did not escape the crack reporters over at the AP.
"In "The Signal," a transmission invades cell phones, radios and TVs, turning people into killers.The film was paused Sunday night while police investigated the incidents. When it was restarted…the first scene was a stabbing."
To recap, an unamed suspect was driven to stab fellow moviegoers by an evil presence transmitted via celluloid.The Ghosbusters failed to return repeated calls from the AP. -Andy Wright

  • 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.'"
