Muni J-Church Blocked by Stranded Tech Bus

The anti-gentrification bloc got yet another perfect allegory today, in the form of a charter bus marooned at the intersection of 21st and Church Streets, right in the path of the J-Church Muni line.

A good samaritan from Twitter alerted SFMTA to the scene. The agency then had to dispatch its own shuttles to supplement service from 16th and Church to Balboa Park. Some deemed that a Pyrrhic victory for regular public transit riders, who've long felt jilted when private luxury coaches commandeered their stops.

 Apparently, the luxury coach — which many believe is a tech junker — couldn't be pushed away as easily as the poorly parked car that delayed the N-Judah at Carl and Arguello yesterday. But perhaps that makes it a more fitting symbol.

According to Muni spokesman Paul Rose, the traffic snarl was cleared at about 9:30 a.m., but riders should expect 20 minute delays.

  • 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.'"
