What's more awkward than domestic arguments on public transportation? How about arguments on the Highway Transportation System -- carried out in separate cars via metal-on-metal violence.

San Francisco Police officers were called in on Saturday to settle a relationship dispute that may or may not have started with the ominous phrase "We've got to talk" -- but ended with a vehicular chase across the Bay Bridge and car-on-car action apropos of Stephen King's Christine.

As the no-nonsense writer of the police report put it, "A man and a woman had been arguing about their relationship with the woman following the man in a vehicle and continuously striking her vehicle against his." The SFPD put an end to this lovers' quarrel at Lincoln and Great Highway and arrested the Oakland woman on five counts of felony assault.

Love is a burning thing...

  • 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.'"
