  • Abalone divers die in two separate incidents.

Authorities have identified the two Abalone divers who died over the weekend along the Sonoma Coast as 57-year-old Alan Rosenlicht, an Oakland resident, and 67-year-old Clyde Thompson, of San Francisco.

Supervising State Park Ranger Jeremy Stinson told media outlets that on Saturday, State Park lifeguards found a Thompson floating in the water in Gerstle Cove in Salt Point State Park.

His flotation device was reportedly found about75 yards off shore.

The following day, Rosenlicht was found unresponsive in the water on Sunday; he was brought to shore where divers administered CPR, but he died at the scene.

  • 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.'"
