After that insane finger-wagging Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer gave President Obama on the tarmac in Phoenix the other day, it's no wonder the president would prefer to be campaigning in San Francisco, where we don't mind gays or immigrants, and we would never think to make a creepy, bullet-riddled T-shirt with Obama's face on it.

Word in the blogosphere is that President Obama and the First Lady will make yet another appearance in San Francisco next month, where he's holding a campaign fundraiser and dinner for his 2012 presidential bid.

This trip to our fair city is reportedly part of a three-day swing across the West Coast, where Obama plans to also stop in Los Angeles and Seattle.

Ticket prices to see President Obama at a reception prior to the dinner will start at $100.

  • 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.'"
