In Berkeley -- as in San Francisco -- the sight of a man in drag with a towel obscuring his face doesn't warrant a second look. But in the women's locker room? Not cool.

The Daily Californian is reporting just such a man has breached the women's showers of U.C. Berkeley's Recreational Sports Facility on multiple occasions. A custodian recently confronted the man, who was purportedly snapping cell phone photographs of the locker room and its denizens.

Women changing their attire are urged to keep an eye out for a short man between 5-foot-4 and 5-foot-6 outfitted in large sunglasses, the aforementioned towel, sweatpants, and curly, shoulder-length black hair believed to be a wig.

He has twice managed to elude police. Perhaps his innocuous appearance allowed him to blend into the Berkeley crowd.

  • 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.'"
