A kitty named Marmoset yesterday was adopted out of the SPCA's Union Square Macy's display window, marking the 200th creature to find a home since the display opened on Nov. 19.

Sadly, however, the SPCA is off the pace required to meet its goal of adopting out 320 dogs or cats. You can do something about this, you know. Hint, hint.

Making the ambitious 320 adoption plateau by the window's last day on Jan. 2 would require a late-December spike. Over the next 11 days, volunteers would have to find homes for just under 11 animals a day -- nearly twice the not-quite-six creatures they've been adopting out daily over the first 34 days of the Macy's window promotion.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the SPCA will be offering a "2-for-1 kitten adoption special" -- both at the window and SPCA headquarters -- between Dec. 26 and Jan. 2.

What better gift than the gift of multiple animals?

  • 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.'"
