It's ON, bitches!
  • It's ON, bitches!
A press release announcing new, less-prudish rules for the Bay to Breakers just hit the wire courtesy of the Mayor's Office. Our calls to the offices of Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi querying if he feels the mayor is taking credit for others' work have not yet been returned. But, most importantly, here are the new rules:

  • Anyone publically drinking alcohol or displaying public drunkenness on or along the race course will be subject to the laws of California. Race organizers will coordinate with the San Francisco Police Department to proactively remove kegs and glass bottles of alcohol from the race course. (Ed. What about cans or aluminum bottles?).
  • Wheeled objects and floats will be permitted on the course, with new provisions for safety. Wheeled objects and floats owners must register and start at the race starting line behind all runners and walkers.  There will be no charge for floats, but the participants who carry or use them must register at
Great job guys! Now solve the city's real problems.

  • 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.'"
