Ha, ha, ha! We made it! We finally made it! We all work for a newspaper -- that's been featured in the Times!

You can read the article this photo illustrated, one of those homey little travelogues about charming drunken vagrants and where to buy organic popcorn, here. It actually is pretty charming, too (though nitpickers will question why the author feels the need to note that leaving Haight for Cole or Waller is "literally" like changing a TV channel. Literally? Really?). Also, the caption for the above photo refers to a "countercultural" singer. Sorry, wouldn't being countercultural in the Haight involve wearing a suit and voting Republican?

Also worth noting: In a story about San Francsico, the author's name is Dan White.

  • 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.'"
