Posted By on Thu, Mar 4, 2010 at 2:45 PM

Ever wondered what would happen if the old man who bellowed at you to keep off his lawn and gave you a civics lesson every time you hit your baseball into his backyard became a cyborg? Thanks to Twitter, jaded users of the service, and today's "Day of Action" protests of state education budget cuts, now you know:

And on that note, the older generation will take your protest more seriously -- when you don't bring along a mobile DJ on wheels, like they did at good old SFSU. Joan Baez was available, people:

  • 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.'"
