If Jeff Adachi is this city's pension crusader, Tony Hall must be pension pope. The former supervisor and professional singer (who has an colorful past, no doubt) told SF Weekly that Adachi's pension solution "isn't worth a darn." It simply doesn't go far enough -- and the Ed Lee plan is a joke.

Interestingly, the city's major proponent of blowing up the pension system and starting anew is, in fact, a pensioner. "That's me!" admits Hall.

In a form he recently submitted to the Department of Elections, Hall reveals that "nearly 100 percent of my current income is the retirement benefits I earned serving in [city] administrative positions. I have no other income."

  • 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.'"
