The upshot of living in the Mission: damn good burritos at any hour of the day. The downsides include the ubiquitous smell of piss, the ugly fashion, and the alcohol-induced violence, also at any hour of the day.

San Francisco police say a massive fight involving 20 people broke out early this morning just after the bars had closed. Officers were called to the intersection of Valencia and 16th streets on reports of a bunch of people brawling in the street.

When officers arrived, they found a man lying on the ground, unresponsive, police said. Two men were rushed to the hospital, one of whom had life-threatening injuries; the second victim is expected to survive.

No word on what started the fight, but police don't think it's gang-related, which means it could have just been one of those evenings where there was too much testosterone and alcohol in the same room.

  • 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.'"
