  • He'll probably be wearing something like this.

Here's something to like: Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is slated to give his first onstage interview since May in San Francisco next week.

The man and his the hoodie will reportedly regale his fellow Facebookers (and annoyed investors?) on Sept. 11 at 2 p .m. at TechCrunch Disrupt SF -- a technology convention that showcases startups, speakers, hackers, and the general nerd.

Despite being the brainchild of Facebook, Zuckerberg is a rather private guy. Which is why this interview is something to look forward to.

He might talk about the company's future, especially after its stock value plummeted much to investors chagrin. Or he just might keep it light and confab about the free speech fight on behalf of the like button. In any case, techies will certainly be hanging on every word the Silicon Valley prince utters.

Disrupt SF runs from Sept. 8 to 12 at the Concourse at San Francisco Design Center. But you have to have created something as profitable as Facebook (or be a lowly press-pass-bearing reporter) to afford entrance to the five-day convention, where tickets start at $2,995. TechCrunch will give 300 lucky students a 90 percent discount, though; still, they can't attend the event for less than $300. Go here to find out more.

Now watch this video to get pumped for the Zuck:

  • 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.'"
