Video: In Wake of San Bruno Inferno, PG&E's Handling of Castro Gas Leak Angers Merchants

Posted By on Wed, Dec 8, 2010 at 11:30 AM

This week's Matt Smith column describes how PG&E's mishandling of a relatively minor gas leak left Castro merchants on edge weeks later.

The leak started as a loud hiss in the early afternoon of Oct. 21, just outside Cliff's Variety at Castro and 18th. Cliff's manager Terry Asten first learned of the leak when she noticed construction workers sprinting away from the front of her store yelling "Run!"

Here she is describing what she believes is PG&E's mishandling of the mishap.

  • 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.'"
