The Medical Examiner's office has not yet released the name of the man found dead in the Excelsior in the wee hours on Sunday. The victim of the city's first homicide case of 2010 was discovered at around 2:30 a.m. yesterday on the 500 block of Naples. 

Moments ago the Medical Examiner's office told SF Weekly that there is no identity to release as of yet -- or anything else. "I got nothing," said the voice on the other end of the phone.

City officials were pleased to note that homicides dropped precipitously in San Francisco in 2009. This year, sadly, is off to a rougher start.

  • 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.'"
