  • Damir Shalako was more easily identified than most fugitives

It won't be hard to spot Damir Shalako in court today. He's the one with "SF" tattooed across his face. Sadly for Shalako, it wasn't hard to spot him outside of court, either.

Last month, the very visible fugitive was spotted by a civilian in Rolph Park; the 25-year-old was wanted for allegedly raping and burglarizing a 45-year-old woman living next door to his grandmother at the Potrero Hill Housing Authority Development. Shalako was crashing with his grandma after being paroled out of Santa Rosa County Jail.

He is facing charges of rape, burglary with the intent to commit rape, and residential robbery -- which could carry a life sentence without the possibility of parole. He has been incarcerated since early October and is being held on $3 million bail.

  • 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.'"
