There are some combinations that can only lead to trouble. Tequila and firearms. Tequila and cutlery. Tequila and white carpeting. The list goes on. Some don't even involve tequila. Some involve sex offenders.

San Francisco police recently ran into a man sporting a troublesome combination of his own: A homeless vagrant near Fisherman's Wharf turned out to be an (A) unregistered sex offender who was; (B) sitting outside a toy store -- shudder -- and; (C) aggressively panhandling.

Officers from Central Station quickly did the math: Unregistered sex

offender + lurking near a toy store + berating the general public =


The man was booked for the sex offender part of this equation.

  • 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.'"
