Quiet Halloween for San Franciscans

Posted By on Thu, Nov 1, 2012 at 2:51 PM


Whether it was the rain or just an exhausted city recovering from celebrating the Giants, San Francisco had a quiet Halloween this year.

With a low number of incidents in the city last night the extra police were almost not needed. Almost.

Police recorded only five incidents last night, including a fight on a crowded bus, a Tenderloin stabbing, two backpack thefts in the Mission, a bike-jacking, and a Muni bus hitting a pedestrian.

Even the notoriously feisty Castro District was relatively calm last night, with no reports of trouble.

Seems like the biggest partiers were the scores of little kids in costume running house to house.

  • 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.'"
