The Internet, it turns out, is a fan of Thomas Bruso's work. The hulking older man dubbed "Epic Beard Man" by Web viewers across the realm enchanted with Bruso's form in administering an authoritative beatdown to a far younger fellow AC Transit passenger isn't an Internet virgin. It turns out Bruso is also the man who gained fleeting Internet fame last year for being caught on camera getting tased by Oakland Police at an A's game:

  • 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.'"
