Cops! Compost! Conspiracies! Killers! The Board of Supervisors has voted, 8-2, that we should have a quiz right now (Michela Alioto-Pier abstained -- but we won't hold it against her).

A. True
B. False

3. What group of anti-Zionist, far-left, Looney Tunes showed at the Muncipal Transportation Authority board meeting to claim that parking meters are an "assault" on the proletariat (but never once lifted a finger when MTA raised transit fares and cut service)?

  • 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.'"
