The Oakland animal shelter is waiving adoption fees for the month of July and launching a foster program for large dogs, the East Bay Express reports.  Oakland Animal Services is at 200% of capacity, in part because the rise in evictions and displacement is forcing families to part from the furry friends. 

These furballs of love need you. And, to be honest, you need them.

  • 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.'"
