Today there'll be speechifying and handshakes and saluting and, perhaps, even cake as Treasure Island is officially handed over by the Navy to the city of San Francisco.

There won't be Chris Daly, however. Treasure Island is part of Daly's District 6, but the supervisor wrote SF Weekly that he has no plans on attending today's festivities.

A staffer in Daly's office noted that "of course Chris was invited," and said a scheduling conflict prevented the supervisor from making today's date. When asked what Daly was doing instead, however, the staffer discovered that the day is open on Daly's calendar.

E-mails to Daly querying why he's skipping today's fairly momentous announcement received a terse response: "We're on Board recess."

True enough. The Supes next meet on Sept. 7. Presumably, Daly will be there.

Arrrrgh, Mendozer! Daly not be here!

  • 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.'"
