All That Shooting You Hear? Don't Worry About It.

Posted By on Mon, Feb 15, 2010 at 7:25 AM

If you hear loud gunfire noises emanating from across the bay at around lunchtime, worry not. No one is shooting up a church and Vallejo is a long way off.

What you may be hearing is a 21-gun salute -- it is President's Day -- by the Coast Guard on Alameda.

If the shooting isn't coming from Alameda and it's not noon -- well, then, that's problematic.

  • 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.'"
