Around 7 p.m. Wednesday, police evening cordoned off several blocks around the wooded area north of Kezar Stadium after an explosion rocked the neighborhoods surrounding eastern Golden Gate Park.

An official accompanying two bomb squad trucks that had been called to the scene said the blast, which could be heard from more than a mile away, came from an unidentified "device" near the intersection of Waller Street and Kezar Drive.

UPDATE: THE 'DEVICE' TURNED OUT TO BE A DUFFEL BAG FULL OF CLOTHES. SEE REPORT HERE.

  • 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.'"
