. Eons ago, SFoodie talked to a source detailing plans for Duc Loi Supermarket (2200 Mission at 18th St.). Established in 1987, Duc Loi was a store with "international" ingredients but didn't stand out as a particularly shop-worthy food market. My, how things have changed. When Duc Loi reopened earlier this year, the place had morphed into something special: a spacious, shiny, clean, and well-priced grocery store with appealing Asian, Latino, and Central American ingredients. It's perfect for browsing -- cooks and snackers alike, rejoice! Check out everything from fish to organic produce, with a side of fresh noodles or tofu products to flesh it out. And should you need a durian or jackfruit for your next brunch, Duc Loi's got you covered.

  • 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.'"
