Posted By on Mon, Feb 9, 2009 at 9:57 AM

On a busy weekend for crime, shootings, and walking in front of MUNI vehicles, the outhouse arsonist(s) returned once more, with a burnout on the 700 block of Chestnut Street yesterday. Deviating from the previous M.O., porta-john No. 22 was lit ablaze at 5:25 in the evening according to police; 20 of the previous 21 receptacles were immolated in the pre-dawn hours.

  • 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.'"
