  • Tough times at Stately Wayne Manor?
Holy Hamburgers, Batman! Say it ain't so!

A man outfitted in the not-memorable-at-all disguise of a Batman mask and false vampire teeth entered a McDonald's in nearby Belmont at around 9 p.m. last night. It's unclear what device man pulled from his utility belt. But, whatever it was, he convinced a restaurant manager to fork over some money before fleeing not in the Batmobile but a silver, two-door Honda.

Batman is described a Hispanic man standing 5-foot-10 to 6-feet-tall and weighing between 215 and 240 pounds -- meaning either Christian Bale is morphing his body again, or we've got a new Batman here.

A San Mateo countywide alert came up empty last night. Sadly, the Bat Signal isn't all it's cracked up to be.

  • 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.'"
