  • Marvin Norwood, in a Dodger blue outfit of his own choosing

There's not much fun in recounting the grim details of the ongoing trial of Marvin Norwood and Louie Sanchez, who are accused of beating Giants fan Bryan Stow to within an inch of his life at Dodgers Stadium last year.

But, there is this: During the trial, Sanchez and Norwood -- who, according to our sister paper LA Weekly, is not the sort of guy to leave alone with your missus -- were both outfitted in unmistakably Dodger blue jail garb.

It would appear this is not a special concession to the allegedly overzealous Dodger fans. And that brings up an interesting parallel -- because prisoners in San Francisco's lockup wear outfits that are Giants orange.

Thanks to the sartorial sense of each respective jail, escape-minded prisoners can more easily blend in with the general population.

Especially up here on Orange Friday.

  • 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.'"
