Student protesters taking part in today's "Day of Action" won't have to put up with any rain -- but, our non-weather forecast does call for a shitstorm.

That term fairly accurately describes the state's stinginess with regard to education funding in recent years. But it also describes the public relations skills of the student protesters. Given the opportunity this morning to express her ethos on live television, one San Francisco State student activist told KTVU Channel 2 reporter Kraig Debro this was all about "not taking their shit." This must have been doubly embarrassing for Debro -- after all, SFSU is his alma mater.

San Francisco denizens in realms other than Park Merced may soon have the opportunity to mingle with student protesters. Rallies are scheduled for both 1:30 and 5 p.m. at Civic Center.

  • 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.'"
