San Francisco police arrested 20 people on Saturday, 11 men and nine

women who they say are self-described members of the notorious Black Bloc street

gang, known for impromptu protests and vandalism. SFPD released the

mugshots of all accused protesters who were arrested after allegedly

tossing bags of rocks, projectiles, and flares at police as they tried

to dismantle the demonstration.

Police say many of these faces

are familiar and might be the same group responsible for the chaotic

protest in the Mission District last month. During that demonstration,

  • 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.'"
