SFist Accuses SF Weekly of Filching Guardian Van, Overlooking *Obvious* Culprit -- PG&E!

So SFist is blaming the robbery of the San Francisco Bay Guardian's "Best of the Bay" van on us. Apparently, some miscreant(s) broke into the SFBG's parking lot last night and zoomed off with the easily identifiable van, powering through a chain-link fence during the great escape.

A quick office poll yielded no admissions of guilt. The poll has also turned up the tip that it's more likely this was an inside job; perhaps one of the Guardian's unpaid interns was seeking the transportation that a $0 salary could not support. Or perhaps, suggested another shout from across the newsroom, the van is still actually in the parking lot, merely being eclipsed by Steven T. Jones' ego. (We can rule Jones himself out after recently reading along with the rest of San Francisco that he prefers his bike: "I love my bike, and so do most people who see it," he wrote.)

If none of those suggestions actually turns up a suspect, blame PG&E.

  • 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.'"
