  • Bad form, lads. Bad form.
A pair of Bernal Heights men's conversation about a member of the opposite sex turned violent Sunday, with the confrontation concluding like all too many poorly refereed quidditch matches.

Police were dispatched to the 300 block of Crescent after a gent reported that he "got into an argument with a co-worker about a woman they knew." The disagreement escalated out of the realm of the verbal when the victim's colleague wielded a broomstick, beat the victim twice, and fled the scene (presumably not on the broomstick).

Per police and wizarding policies, the suspect in this case is He Who Shall Not Be Named.

  • 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.'"
