Hells Angels: Are They Lauryn Hill Fans?

The police told us a strange new twist in the Hells Angels attack on Market Street last night. The Angels and their soon-to-be victims had been at a show at the Warfield, says Sergeant Michael Andraychak.

Well, Tuesday night's show was none other than Lauryn Hill, the popular R&B artist.

The Hells Angels are fans of Lauryn Hill?

Andraychak says the victim first saw the men in their Angels

jackets in the lobby of the Warfield. When the victims left the venue, the suspects also

exited, then stood in front of them to prevent them from turning right at the corner of Market and Taylor.

News reports

claim a Hells Angels member asked the 35-year-old victim whether he was a

Mongol -- a rival motorcycle gang -- before attacking him. Police are unsure whether he was stabbed with a knife or  a broken



says the victim has improved and was able to talk with police officers. His injuries are no longer

considered life-threatening. The victim does not claim any gang affiliation, and was not

wearing a motorcycle-gang jacket at the time of the attack.

Police have made no arrests, but have been canvassing the

neighborhood for surveillance footage.

Are they going to raid

the Hells Angels clubhouse on Tennessee Street? "We wouldn't tell you if we were," Andraychak says.

It looks like the Hells Angels have won at least the first round of this fight, but as Lauryn Hill would rap, "How you gonna win if you ain't right within?"

  • 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.'"
