Police Intervene in Nasty Excelsior Food Fight

On Friday, police were called to a home in the Excelsior District to break up another argument over basic needs. This time it was about food -- rotting food.

Apparently, one of the residents isn't good at cleaning up after herself, and a fellow resident couldn't stand the stench any longer. He got "upset" with her over the scent, and thus the fight began.

The verbal argument escalated, and the female resident told police that her angry counterpart made an overt move toward her. The male resident didn't deny the attempted assault, admitting to police the smell of rotting who-knows-what drove him to it. He was arrested and cited.

We're sure lawyers are already salivating over the composting Twinkie defense.

  • 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.'"
