Muni spokesman Judson True told us that the 90-odd minute, rain-induced shutdown of the city's rail system is over. But if you live near Van Ness station -- you're getting wet.

Because of flooding at that stop, trains are rolling right through without halting. True says Muni hopes to "clean out" at least one exit at that deluged station shortly, so passengers can disembark.

As reported elsewhere, the heavy rains wreaked havoc on riders' days. Looks like Leonard the storm had the last laugh after all.

  • 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.'"
