Hey, nothing to worry about...
  • Hey, nothing to worry about...
Explosions will ripple through the Bay Area today -- but those averse to objects blowing up are urged to worry not. It's all part of the drill.

Today is the Golden Guardian full-scale, port security exercise across the state -- and "The Ports of Oakland, Redwood City, and Benicia will all suffer various degrees of explosions," according to organizers.You may hear some booms and see smoke hanging over the bay as attacks on cargo ships and bombings are simulated.

Also today, the Navy will demonstrate its militarily trained dolphins

and seals down by AT&T Park. This, blessedly, will not result in

explosions or smoke. So we're told.

  • 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.'"
