Recently, we decided that San Francisco's Mission hipsters have adapted a fashion that looks kinda like Bill Gates fucked a clown. Unbeknownst to us, that look is hot, hot, hot.

Believe it or not, the Mission District has been deemed the 20th most stylish neighborhood in the world. Sorry, Castro nudists, your dicks just aren't setting the fashion trends.

In any event, the editors over at Complex, an online lifestyle mag, have decided that Mission denizens give fashion and fun a good name, claiming that sunny hamlet is "one of the dopest neighborhoods in the world." We'd like to know what role gang colors have played into this calculation.

Per the magazine:

The neighborhood was dubbed "the New Bohemia" during the mid-'90s, and cultural attractions, low rent, and constantly popping nightlife continue to make it popular. It's the oldest neighborhood in San Francisco. The young and hip who live in the Mission hang out at Dolores Park -- the perfect place to take in the beat of the neighborhood. And at night time, the cool and stylish scene is at Beast and the Hare.
Check out which hoods are more (and less) happening than the Mission. You won't believe it.

  • 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.'"
