Hundreds of Giants fans lined up past Juan Marichal, over the Lefty O'Doul Bridge, and snaked close to "Weed Rock" to be the first to pick up a World Series Championship T-Shirt.

When it comes to Giants paraphernalia, this city's fans have demonstrated that, if you hawk it, they will come. The cultural relevance of a black fake beard is mayfly brief. But, hey, you paid for it.

Come what may, however, the Giants are World Champions. That'll be the case forever and a day. But these people wanted their T-shirts. Today.

  • 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.'"
