The notion of leaping into Mission Creek is about as appealing as casting a fishing line into a cesspool. But leap into Mission Creek is just what a troop of water polo players did prior to Game 1 of the World Series.

That game is now a fond memory. We are less fond of one of its remnants -- the aqua athletes' goal is still sitting at the side of Mission Creek, gathering rust. Hey fellas -- wanna come back and pick up your trash?

  • 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.'"
