Kamala Harris: Take a Maalox

  • The cure for political heartache?

To those tormented by the stunningly close Attorney General's race between Steve Cooley and Kamala Harris, San Francisco's district attorney offers a bit of medical advice: "Grab some Maalox."

Harris made her impromptu pitch for a particular brand of heartburn medication at a press conference today announcing murder and rape charges filed against the suspected killer of Kate Horan. When asked about the Attorney General's race -- and, per the latest totals, Harris trails by 19,189 votes -- she kept her statement short. And medicinal.

It may take weeks for a winner in the race to be declared.

The good people at Maalox, incidentally, don't suggest taking their product for more than two weeks except under explicit doctor's orders.

  • 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.'"
