At around 9:05 this morning, a trio of massive crane fresh from the factory in Shanghai passed beneath the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges -- with a Lebron James vertical leap of room to spare. SF Weekly's favorite floating photographer, Gabor Gardonyi, was there. A tugboat chef who moonlights as an ace with the camera, he caught the Zhen Hua 15 with its load for the Port of Oakland before, during, and after its limbo with the Bay Bridge:

  • 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.'"
