On the last day of straightforward $4 tolls for the Bay Bridge, a woman driving a Volvo hit speeds of 100 miles per hour on the eastbound, lower deck before hitting a recycling truck and bursting into flames  in the predawn hours. The woman's identity has not yet been released; the Medical Examiner's office has dubbed her "Jane Doe No. 12."

The driver of the big rig was not harmed in the accident, which shut down all eastbound traffic between about 3:50 and 4:30 a.m. A pair of lanes were then opened and the bridge was completely cleared by about 6 a.m.

  • 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.'"
