San Francisco police think a brawl outside a SoMa nightclub early Sunday might be the reason why a stabbing victim staggered into an Oakland hospital shortly thereafter.

While there are plenty ills in Oakland that could be explained away thanks to San Francisco nightlife violence, police probably have a good reason to think the 30-person brawl outside of 1015 Folsom at 3:30 a.m. has something to do with the as-yet unidentified 26-year old who underwent surgery at Highland Hospital in the East Bay city, according to Bay City News.

The club hosted a German electronic music duo on Saturday night, not necessarily the kind of act which encourages party-goers to get their guns out. Regardless, police responded to calls of a fight at the early hour of 3:30 a.m., but most everyone had already dispersed, save a 34-year old man with cuts to his head who refused medical attention, police said. No arrests were made.

A friend of the 26-year old stabbing victim said he was involved in the fight, police said. No other information or update into his health was immediately available.

Anyone who witnessed the fight should call SFPD's tip line. Here's a list of numbers.

Sunday morning's incident will, inevitably, draw some more attention to the Entertainment Commission. The city body tasked with regulating and controlling the city's nightclubs has been under scrutiny and pressure since the Feb. 7 fatal shooting outside of the now-shuttered Suede nightclub near Fisherman's Wharf. There was another fatal shooting April 11 outside of other SoMa nightspots.

A call by SF Weekly to the Entertainment Commission's offices was not immediately returned. In the meantime, consider staying in and making it a Pandora night, everyone.

  • 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.'"
