San Francisco police are asking all you ravers to leave your pacifiers at home and stay away from Treasure Island this weekend, where an illegal rave is reportedly being planned.

Officer Albie Esparza tells us that a parent tipped off SFPD, saying that kids are planning to attend this rave on Yerba Buena Island Saturday night. However, police have not been able to confirm this. "We tried contacting promoters to see if anyone knows about it -- but nobody does," Esparza says.

In any event, SFPD is going to be prepared just in case; cops, including the California Highway and the Coast Guard, will be swarming the island come Saturday to make sure this party doesn't happen.

Here's what SFPD has to say about it:

PUBLIC ADVISORY: "Project X" event scheduled for Yerba Buena Island on Sat, 8/18/12, is NON-PERMITTED & ILLEGAL. SFPD has notified California Highway Patrol & US Coast Guard of this event. Check points will be established & entry onto the island on that date will be limited. Trespassing, vandalism & other related crimes associated with an event of this nature will be enforced.
And if enough of you go anyway? "We will have to shut it down somehow," Esparza told us. 

Well, a party isn't really a party until the cops show up, right?

  • 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.'"
