  • A grim discovery on the waterfront...
The dead woman found crumpled into a suitcase floating off Folsom and Embarcadero yesterday will go under the knife at the Medical Examiner's office.

Details are scarce; the Medical Examiner would not this morning release the identity of the victim. Calls to the San Francisco Police Department have not yet been returned.

The woman is likely a thirtysomething Caucasian or Latina. Based on the condition of her body, police say, she was probably not in the suitcase for more than a couple of days.

Police are consulting with the Coast Guard to determine the wave patterns over that time, to better determine where the suitcase could have been dropped into the water.

  • 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.'"
