The friends and family of Brian Erb, who put out the hue and cry when the Concord man went missing earlier this month, have had their worst fears realized.

The 33-year-old married father of two was found dead Friday in a lodge in the far northern Idaho town of Sandpoint.

Erb's cause of death is still being determined, but there were no apparent signs of violence or foul play. His family runs the Back Forty Texas BBQ restaurant in Pleasant Hill, and he'd been working there on Nov. 10, the last day his friends and family saw him alive.

He had purportedly argued with his wife before leaving abruptly with camping gear.

  • 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.'"
