  • Wait, where are you from?

A drunken San Francisco man got a knife in the chest for a perceived offense he truly had no control over.

The man was found with a stab wound on Richland and Mission, stumbling distance from Holly Park. When asked by police how he came to be in this predicament, he claimed he'd been surrounded by five Hispanic men at around midnight on Tuesday morning. When asked where he was from, he responded with the name of the Central American nation of his birth. This displeased Suspect No. 1.

The man with the knife noted that he hailed from another country. This, he felt, entitled him to stab the Central American. This he did.

The victim staggered to a nearby residence and asked for help following the stabbing. Police were unable to find the band of men. No word on where the good folks who helped out the victim hail from.

  • 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.'"
