City Attorney Dennis Herrera Announces Mystery Press Conference Regarding Settlement With ... He's Not Telling!

Roll up, it's ... Dennis Herrera?
  • Roll up, it's ... Dennis Herrera?
In a bizarre turn of events, the City Attorney's office yesterday sent out a news release devoid of news.

At 10:30 a.m. today, City Attorney Dennis Herrera has something to say -- but he isn't giving any hints as to what it is. A settlement in a "prominent and longstanding case" will be announced, but "under terms of the agreement, the parties are prohibited from discussing

or disclosing it in advance of Thursday morning's scheduled announcement."

What is this, civic governance or 20 questions?

A little bird told us that this was "important" and there was a "monetary element" to it. So, even though we ought not to enable this kind of secretive behavior, we said we'd attend the presser today.

When we know what the hell is going on, we'll let you know.

  • 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.'"
