Knife-Wielding Drunk Tries to Slice Pedestrians in the Mission

If you happened to go home before the bars closed in the Mission last night, here's the excitement you missed:

A drunk man allegedly unleashed his liquor-induced rage on pedestrians along Mission and 16th streets. The drama unfolded just after 2 a.m. when the stumbling man pulled out a knife and started waving it and yelling at passersby.

Fortunately in his drunken stupor, he had terrible aim, and only managed to catch the sleeve of a man's shirt, according to police.

The drunk man continued his fit until police showed up and arrested him on suspicion of aggravated assault.

Needless to say, this Mission Street craziness certainly put a damper on an otherwise perfect summer night.

  • 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.'"
