Remember how much fun Bloodhound's last mashup of butchery and boozing was? Here's your chance to touch the magic (ar at least risk being splattered by it) all over again. On June 16 - next Tuesday - Ryan Farr of 4505 Meats and Taylor Boetticher of Fatted Calf are tag-teaming for Porkapalooza: Two guys, one pig, and several scary-looking knives. Instead of demo-butchering separate pigs as in May's hackoff, they'll work on a single victim suspended from the ceiling, slaughterhouse style.

Munchies include the pig, grilled, as well as hot dogs, which are shaping up to be the new bacon. You'll get to sample Farr's 4505 hot dogs, Fatted Calf's dogs, and everybody's favorite -- corn dogs. You can bet 4505's fetishlike chicharrones will be lurking in snack bowls, too. Sip an old fashioned made with the bacon-infused bourbon we've been trying to track down, too, or simply wash down all the meaty extravagance with a brewski. Tickets? $30. Get 'em at Brown Paper Tickets. Bloodhound, 1145 Folsom (at Hallam), 6 p.m.

  • 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.'"
