San Francisco rang in the New Year with its first homicide -- 30-year-old Walter Smith was stabbed to death in the early morning hours on New Year's Day.

Police had very little information at this time, but said officers were called to Third and Ingerson streets about 3:15 a.m. on reports of a man who was found with a stab wound to his neck.

Smith was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Police couldn't confirm what Smith was stabbed with, nor did they have any suspect information at this time.

  • 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.'"
