San Franciscan Michel Chagall can be forgiven for doing a double-take at this week's cover of SF Weekly. The demonic-looking canine glancing out from the newspaper boxes is a dead ringer for Chagall's Chihuahua, Samson Mordechai Wezenheid (that's a lot of name for such a little dog!).

Samson and our cover cur may be distant relations -- but, rest assured, no one named Samson Mordechai Wezenheid has ever appeared on SF Weekly's cover. We'd remember that.

  • 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.'"
