Junkie Teddy Bear Ditches College Degree for Heroin Habit

Posted By on Mon, Jan 14, 2013 at 8:40 AM

One of the many, many reasons we enjoy San Francisco is its endless ability to make us stop and say "WTF?"

Take Saturday for instance, when we stumbled across this scholarly bear sitting in a chair shooting horse on the corner of Page and Divisadero. Needless to say, he (she?) probably wasn't the only one shooting smack in Haight the that day.

  • 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.'"
