The San Francisco Medical Examiner's office has told SF Weekly that the man found stabbed to death in Bayview at 12:49 Monday morning by the San Francisco Police Department was Douglas Johnson, a 49-year-old San Franciscan. Police reports state Johnson got out of his parked car on the 1600 block of La Salle Avenue to speak with a 44-year-old black man, who subsequently stabbed him in the chest before fleeing the scene on foot.

No arrests have yet been made in the stabbing. Johnson is the 22nd homicide victim in the city this year, and the first since Robert Matas was found stabbed to death in the Kezar Stadium parking lot in the wee hours last Wednesday.

  • 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.'"
