It' Ain't a Bar Fight Till Someone Breaks Out the Crowbar

If you're boozing it up at a bar and someone whips out a screwdriver -- that's probably no big thing. But when the crowbar comes out, it's time to run.

That was the case earlier this week at a tavern that shall remain unnamed in the vicinity of San Jose and 29th. A tippler was enjoying some libations when a fistfight broke out between the victim-to-be and another patron.

The combatants were separated by security. But the aggrieved party soon returned with a crowbar and, per the subsequent police writeup, "began a second attack on the victim."

The victim's injuries were described as "non-life threatening."

Doesn't mean it didn't hurt.

  • 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.'"
