Robber Knocks Over Two Marin Banks with Just His Hand

Posted By on Wed, Mar 5, 2008 at 10:50 AM


A bank robber held up two Marin banks in rapid succession last week, according to the Marin Independent Journal. Using his hand to simulate a gun under his clothing, he hit the Westamerica Bank in San Rafael at 11:15 a.m. and a Wells Fargo in San Anselmo fifteen minutes later. This follows a separate string of robberies in the San Jose area carried out by a robber police dubbed the "Broken Nosed Bandit", who has since been apprehended. We are anti-bankrobbing, but pro giving bankrobbers kickass nicknames, and thus propose this moniker for the Marin robber based on his casual (but neat!) attire: The Lands End Robber. Try it on for size, White Man in His Mid-20s to Early 30s. See how you like it. — 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.'"
