In a dour sign of the era, an unknown vandal -- who obviously knows how to sling together a few nouns and verbs -- has absolutely put San Francisco State's ad wizards in clown suits with a few deft marks of his pen.

You can click on the image for a large version of this top-notch bit of social commentary/graffiti. Keep in mind that the sloppy purple "ink" is part of the ad, while the sloppy black ink was scrawled by our most eloquent rapscallion. -- Joe Eskenazi

  • 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.'"
