Seen In San Francisco: Lunatic Rollerbladers Transform Bus Shelter Into Skate Ramp

Posted By on Fri, Jul 10, 2009 at 9:30 AM

A pair of San Francisco rollerbladers last night found a novel new use for the Haight and Fillmore bus shelter -- though it's a good bet the Municipal Transit Authority won't be thrilled with their inventiveness.

The pair of skaters noted that they built this ramp specifically to be used with this bus shelter -- "Yeah -- he just wants to grind it on one side," said one about his buddy careening down Haight. We'll admit we have no idea what that means -- especially because our question was "Did you build that ramp specifically for that bus shelter?" -- but the skater rolled off to go do his grinding business before we could admit our ignorance.

  • 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.'"
