Occupy SF Taunt Police After Eviction (Slideshow)

Posted By on Wed, Dec 7, 2011 at 4:35 PM

The one immediate drawback to clearing out the Occupy SF camp was that it didn't do much to deter protesters; in fact the group only grew louder and more visible. In other words, they might have packed up, but they didn't go home. Rather, they crowded the streets, blocked Muni, and made noise outside downtown office buildings.

We went down to this scene earlier to get a sense of whether Occupy SF would actually "reoccupy" its former camp site just as protesters did after being booted out of Frank Ogawa Plaza in Oakland. But let's face it, San Francisco's hullaballoo will always pale in comparison to Oakland.

Anyway, here's a snapshot of what we saw downtown today, post police raid:

  • 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.'"
