Update, 3:21 p.m.: The BART station has reopened and trains are up and running again. 

Original Story 2:28 p.m.: That power outage plaguing the East Bay this afternoon has made its way to BART. 

The transit agency has informed us that the downtown station in Berkeley is closed down due to the lack of power over there. Trains are not stopping there, so find another way around. 

Some 12,000 customers over in the East Bay are without power for reasons that are unknown right now, PG&E reports.  

We'll tell you more when we know more.

  • 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.'"
