  • Love is a many splendored thing...
Yes, love hurts. The roadway hurts more.

A Saturday police report details what appears to be a particularly messy lovers' quarrel -- undertaken at high speed. The cops' involvement started at 2:10 in the morning when officers responded to calls of a person lying in the street and discovered a seriously injured younger man on the road at Alemany and Ellsworth.

When asked, concisely, what the hell just happened, he was uncooperative. But he did see fit to note that he'd had an argument with his girlfriend. And he was drunk.

Things took a turn for the worse; the young man's condition grew more dire as hospital doctors determined he'd suffered a "brain injury." 

After numerous calls to the injured man's girlfriend, police finally learned why his argument led to him being on the side of the road: She claimed he leaped from her car while she was driving.

As to why it took calls from strangers to report his grave condition, she told police that she "became lost" trying to get back to where her boyfriend had jumped from the vehicle. And, when she returned, he wasn't there

SF Weekly's requests to the police for more information on this case have not yet been returned.

  • 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.'"
