  • Dianne Feinstein has decided not to ruin Jerry Brown's shot at the statehouse
Curtailing long months of speculation stoked by precious little substance, Sen. Dianne Feinstein yesterday told Orange County crowds she's not running for governor -- and, purportedly, let ostensible front-runner Jerry Brown know this is his thing to lose.

That may not be what Democratic big shots fixated on appealing to older, more conservative voters want to hear. And, speaking of "older" and "more conservative," Prince Frederic Von Anhalt, the eighth man Zsa Zsa Gabor said "I do" to, said he'll file his paperwork today with the Secretary of State to run for governor. Brown need not worry, however -- Anhalt plans to run as a "Liberal Independent."

"I will stay at home and promote California products," said the prince of his governing strategy. "We have the best

avocados, oranges, wine, weather, beaches and Marijuana."

  • 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.'"
