Wandering into Taste's chocolate pavilion, I met Shawn Askinosie of Springfield, MO's Askinosie Chocolate. I learned of his commitment to fair trade as well as a pretty sweet initiative to help the homeless and low-income citizens of his hometown, a program that he calls Chocolate University.—Tamara Palmer

  • 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.'"
