  • RIP

Former Apple CEO Steve Jobs has died. Media outlets are reporting that Apple announced the 56-year-old tech guru died peacefully today surrounded by his family.

Jobs died a day after Apple released  the iPhone 4s and nearly two months after he resigned as CEO of the company.

Apple's Board of Directors released the following statement:

"We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today. Steve's brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations thatenrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve. His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts."

Jobs survived pancreatic cancer and then in January went back on medical leave for unknown reasons. He was reportedly seen coming out of Stanford Cancer Center in February looking "gaunt."

  • 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.'"
