  • Fiona wants answers -- she wants THE TRUTH!
When the 21st Amendment brewed a batch of special Twitter Beer, we thought the Web mega-trend had finally served a discernible, useful purpose.

We're pretty sure we still think the beer's the thing after catching the latest San Francisco government-related Tweet: Fiona Ma's car has been violated and she's turning to the Internet for help:

Someone broke my

blue prius' back window in front of 100 Spear on Mission St. Did anyone

c anything? If so email [REDACTED -- but it's not hard to find]. Tx

First of all, driving a blue Prius in San Francisco today is like driving a white Cadillac El Dorado in Dallas in 1975. And it remains to be seen why someone who saw a car window being broken would fail to confess until a Twitter message guilted him into it. Can you induce guilt while abbreviating "see" to "c"? I'm not sure.

I have the thought that Ma will receive far more suggestions for good glass repair guys than reports from eyewitnesses who had previously clammed up. Either way, there's no harm in sending out a Tweet, it seems. Talk is cheap and 140 characters is hardly even talk.

  • 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.'"
