  • Even if you're lucky enough to rent it, you'll still have to deal with city bureaucracy

There's that one dreaded spot we've all experienced alike in San Francisco: an open house.

It's those Saturday mornings you spend next to 50 San Franciscans shoving past you with their credit reports and pay stubs, vying for the city's last 500-square-feet of squalid paradise.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11

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.'"
