  • "Landslide" Norman Yee has a 33-vote lead -- for now

Today's daily Maalox Moment for District 7 supe candidates Norman Yee and F.X. Crowley -- and their supporters -- has arrived.

In the brutally close race, today's latest count has Yee up by 33 votes. He was up by 20 as of Sunday.

The Department of Elections has run through nearly all of the outstanding ballots, but personnel say that "we have a number of provisional ballots still to be counted."

Following the discovery of a "formatting error" that had erroneously put Yee ahead, Crowley was staked to a 338-vote lead on election night. Since that time, his lead slowly eroded. He was leapfrogged over the weekend.

It remains anyone's race -- but Yee is likely consuming a shade less Maalox at the moment.

  • 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.'"
