Rarely will you stumble across an incident categorized by the San Francisco Police Department as "Indecent Exposure/Hallucinogen Offense" and not uncover a worthy anecdote.

This one took place late last week, when a quintet of officers detained a man in the 3500 block of Mission Street police claim was "standing in the middle of the street completely naked with his pants around his ankles."

This prompted a search -- which must have been pleasant for everyone involved -- which turned up "suspected illegal narcotics" The police report does not state where, exactly, these suspected narcotics were turned up. We're forced to use our imaginations.

The incident concluded with police noting that they "believed the subject was under the influence of an illegal narcotic."

Call it a hunch.

  • 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.'"
