Police Blotter: Fight For Your Right to Party

Via the Ingleside Station newsletter comes this incident from last week, seemingly cribbed from an episode of Reno 911:

10:55pm                 00-100 blk Brookdale Ave.
Disturbing the Peace

Officers ... responded to a burglary.  While conducting their investigation, they heard very loud music coming from an apartment over 100 feet away.  [Officers] ... contacted a very intoxicated subject inside the apartment, who had just turned up the music even louder upon the officer's arrival.  [Officers] issued the subject a citation for disturbing the peace. 

There are several awesome bits of information in this notice. The first

is that the officers who wrote up this incident were so impressed by

the subject's drunken state that they described him or her as not just

intoxicated but "very intoxicated." The second is that when confronted

by two police officers on his or her doorstep, the drunken reveler

decided to turn his music up "even louder,"  in a (one assumes)

misguided attempt to take a stand for the average American's right to

drink 16 beers and listen to Rush* really, really loud, damn it. Sadly,

this fellow suffered the fate of so many rebels for freedom, and was

issued a citation by The Man.

*We are just guessing about the Rush.

  • 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.'"
