  • Tempers flared in San Francisco last week...

Last week we wrote about a strange, albeit international, incident in the south of the city. A menacing group of hoodlums surrounded a stumbling drunk and asked him his country of origin. Not liking the answer, the leader of the pack said he was from a different -- and, in his eye, better -- nation. He then stabbed the drunk.

The countries involved were redacted from the initial police writeup. But now we know.

Per the San Francisco Police, the victim told the mob he was a "proud Mexican." The knife man then replied he was from El Salvador.

And to top it off, everything happened on Brazil Avenue.

  • 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.'"
