Not so long ago SF Weekly reported on the exploding number of sea lions on Hyde Street Harbor -- a situation deemed an "infestation" by those charged with keeping the city's piers operational and relatively sea lion excrement-free.

It seems, however, that the sea lions have found a new neighborhood to patrol -- the suburbs to the dense metropolis that is Pier 39 and Fisherman's Wharf. They're heading to Mission Creek and McCovey Cove in droves. The photographs and film here were shot yesterday; as many as 15 or more lions moseyed up and back the canal at a time.

  • 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.'"
