Anti-Gentrifier Pukes on Yahoo Bus

Make sure you aren't eating lunch while you read this. We're seeing reports about a tech bus blockade over in Oakland this morning, but one that included bodily functions. That's right, an angry anti-gentrifier purportedly barfed all over a Google Yahoo bus windshield while surrounding tech buses at the Oakland McArthur BART station. If you don't believe us, look no further than Twitter:

Okay, now we feel kinda sick.

The puke was part of the Defend the Bay Area week of action, which is basically a chance for everyone to confront "issues of rent, gentrification, surveillance, the police state, real estate development, and the destructive impact of the tech industry on people's daily lives."

The blockade -- which included about 50 people -- stalled traffic for 30 minutes or so.

That's all. Now you can go back to eating your lunch.

  • 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.'"
