  • Apparently, Gavin Newsom is now motoring toward a run for Lt. Gov. So they say.
Gavin Newsom's dose of political constipation regarding his run for lieutenant governor looks like it'll finally end tomorrow. The Los Angeles Times reports important, nameless people have assured them Newsom sought their support and will make his announcement tomorrow, armed with a bevy of key endorsements.

What's more, Newsom has formed a recipient committee and started receiving thousands of dollars from well-wishers. So not only is the smart money on Newsom running, it appears the friendly money is, too.

Meanwhile, San Francisco's erstwhile mayor made it clear that he won't tip his hand -- any more than he already has -- until tomorrow. Wonder what he'll say?

  • 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.'"
