Continuing in the long tradition of presidential candidates who treat San Francisco as more of an ATM than a place where voters live, Hillary Clinton is holding two private fundraisers in the city today, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. She'll host a lunchtime "Conversations With Hillary" event at the home of Tom Steyer (net worth $1.62 billion) and an afternoon event at the home of millionaire Esprit co-founder Susie Tompkins Buell. According to the Chronicle, tickets for both events are $2700. 

Clinton is not holding any public events in the Bay Area during her trip. 

Environmental activists plan to protest outside the afternoon fundraiser to call on Clinton to reject the Keystone XL pipeline. They'll be at the corner of Steiner and Jackson Streets starting at 4:30pm. Tickets are free.

  • 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.'"
