The Medical Examiner's office has not yet released the name of the man found dead in the Excelsior in the wee hours on Sunday. The victim of the city's first homicide case of 2010 was discovered at around 2:30 a.m. yesterday on the 500 block of Naples. 

Moments ago the Medical Examiner's office told SF Weekly that there is no identity to release as of yet -- or anything else. "I got nothing," said the voice on the other end of the phone.

City officials were pleased to note that homicides dropped precipitously in San Francisco in 2009. This year, sadly, is off to a rougher start.

The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
