This Armored Car Crash Only Looked Like a Heist

When a Garda armored car crashed into a black Ford F-450 parked in front of the Trader Joe's on Bay and Mason streets earlier this afternoon, the scene only looked like something out of some crime movie.

A witness at the scene told SF Weekly that the cab of the armored car got too close to the parked truck's tricked-out oversized tires, and the driver lost control. Nobody was in the parked truck, but a Garda employee in the rear of the armored car was not wearing a seat belt and suffered injuries to his face and leg.

​The biggest surprise: It took about 10 minutes before the cops showed up to an armored car crash. Do not use this information for evil.

  • 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.'"
