Great Highway 'Road Warrior' Runs Afoul of the Law

Forgive us for pointing this out on the cusp of Bike to Work Day, but a car is a useful device. It is not, however, a debating tool -- and a man who was using it for that dubious purpose was arrested on Monday.

The San Francisco Police Department received a report from a woman driving on Great Highway near Sloat Boulevard that a man was attempting to pass her on the shoulder. He then tailgated her car ominously before intentionally ramming his car into her rear bumper.

A verbal altercation ensued with the woman's passenger, following which the enraged gent resumed piloting his car into the woman's vehicle -- twice.

The suspect was eventually tracked to his home, where he was arrested

by the Pacifica Police Department and booked  on three counts of felony

assault. Quite seriously, score this one for the bike advocates -- this

would never have happened if these folks were all riding cycles -- and,

if it had, the miscreant would have been picked up long before he made

it back to Pacifica.

  • 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.'"
