  • Nadine opens her gift from Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift is helping to heal the 8-year-old girl who was randomly shot by a crossbow last week during a school field trip to Berkeley.

CBS News reports that the country pop star sent a gift of goodies to Nadine after hearing about the youngster's injury; Nadine was playing on a whale structure outside the museum at the Lawrence Hall of Science when a crossbow lodged her in the leg. Police still have no idea where that arrow came from.

Nadine later told reporters she sang Taylor Swift songs in the ambulance to help calm her nerves.

"Oh my gosh, I was singing 'Sparks Fly' in the ambulance with the arrow in my leg," Nadine told CBS News.

Swift heard all about this, and on Tuesday, Nadine, who is recovering like a little champ, received a care package with a backpack and other Taylor Swift-themed items.

Police have yet to track down the person responsible for shooting the arrow, but the care package from Swift has certainly taken Nadine's mind off the incident -- and for that she's thankful.

"It takes the pain away a lot," Nadine explained.

  • 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.'"
