OccupySF is getting its first brush with national -- and very conservative --  figures; protesters are planning to make their way down to the Palace Hotel this afternoon where right-wing media mogul Rupert Murdoch and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will be opining on education.

The two right-wingers arrived in San Francisco today  for the 2011 national summit of Jeb Bush's Foundation for Excellence in Education. Murdoch will be the keynote speaker on Friday morning, where he is expected to discuss the use of digital technology in education reform.

And while they plan to talk education reform, protesters with OccupySF have a much more cynical topic on their agenda: The "selling of public education."

So if you are tired of government  waste or if you just plain can't stand Bush, join OccupySF today , where members will meet from 4 to 6 p.m. at the the Palace Hotel, 2 New Montgomery.

  • 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.'"
