Target Protest Will Be a Double Whammy

Remember how last week nobody knew whether to protest Target on August 14th or 15th? (Reminder: You were going to

demonstrate against the chain's $150,000 donation to a political

action committee that gave to a

gay-hating Republican gubernatorial candidate in Minnesota.)

Well, the guy behind the National Day of Protest Against Target got back to us. Turns out, both days are on. "We've consistently been encouraging people to protest wherever and whenever," said Jeffrey Henson, a 41-year-old from Portland, Ore., who created and moderates an official protest page on Facebook.

Although the official day of protest is indeed the 14th, he says, there

is also an independent day of protest on the 15th. "As long as they

speak up and speak out," Henson says, either day people raise hell it is fine

with him.

So perhaps those in San Francisco -- which doesn't

even have a Target yet -- can take the opportunity to protest Daly

City's Target on one day, and Colma's on the next.

  • 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.'"
