No, that wasn't a garbage truck or your amorous roommates (or, maybe it was that, too). A 3.5-magnitude quake with an undersea epicenter three miles from San Francisco Zoo in the city's westernmost corner rattled city residents today at 7:47 a.m.


There are not, as of yet, any reports of injuries or even property

damage. The jolt was rather short -- so, essentially, its nearby

epicenter meant that west San Francisco residents had just enough time

to think, "Wait, is that an..." and it was done.

Well, it was.

  • 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.'"
