Alex Fagan, the decorated former chief best recalled for his and his son's role in the city's bizarre "fajitagate" scandal will be laid to rest 10 a.m. Friday at St. Mary's Cathedral.

Lest passers-by think uncharitable thoughts about the departed Fagan for an event truly beyond his control, the San Francisco Police Department suggests commuters avoid the area of the cathedral -- that'd be Gough and Geary -- between 9 a.m. and noon.

"The public should plan their travels accordingly," is how a release put it. So if you wish to be stuck in an ocean of blue-suited, somber cops -- plan accordingly.

  • 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.'"
