  • Now a smaller wave?

This week, the evolving America's Cup deal underwent a sea change. A proposal to reimburse Larry Ellison's America's Cup Event Authority to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars via long-term leases for waterfront property was abruptly curtailed; now the city and race organizers are wrangling over the terms of a deal that may end up entailing perhaps one-tenth the public investment.

Obviously, much is up in the air -- but, this much is for certain. There's plenty to talk about.

SF Weekly's Joe Eskenazi is a scheduled guest on tonight's 6 p.m. broadcast of League of Pissed Off Voters Radio on Mutiny Radio -- the successor of Pirate Cat Radio.

Interested parties can listen to the show live at this link, and download an eventual podcast at this one.

Eskenazi earlier appeared on KQED's Forum to discuss the Cup deal. You can hear a podcast of that show here.

  • 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.'"
