World Series: San Francisco Goes Crazy After Giants Win (Video)

Posted By on Mon, Oct 29, 2012 at 7:17 AM

If you were in the East Bay last night watching the Giants sweep the World Series, you missed the mega street party across the bay. San Franciscans poured into the streets by the thousands in almost every neighborhood, blocking traffic and unleashing their excitement in whatever way it felt right.

And then that excitement went a little too far. The cops were reportedly called out to the Mission District to break up rowdy crowds of baseball fans that had started small fires and were blowing things up. Down by AT&T Park, the SWAT team moved in on fans who were tossing beer bottles in the street and igniting their own little fires of joy.

When it was all said and done, some 35 people were arrested.

  • 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.'"
