Earlier this week, we shouted out some local eateries tributing Michael Jackson on their menus. Since then, we've had a closer look at the Jesus Juice ($7.50 a pint) from Humphry Slocombe (2790 Harrison at 24th St.).

What began as an afternoon toast to the King of Pop on Thursday afternoon between HS chef/owner Jake Godby and operations manager Sean Vahey became a beautiful sorbet by Friday, as Godby mixed and froze a concoction of Kermit Lynch Cotes du Rhone and Coke Classic. SFoodie was skeptical (would it taste like a bad acid trip?), but pleasantly surprised by the grape fizzy slush action. It's the flavor of a childhood gone wrong.

HS rotates (and sells out of) its frozen treats often, so you may be outta luck and have to turn your own water into wine. But there's no harm in requesting a lil Jesus Juice anyway, just so Godby and Vahey know there are customers who'd want to bring it back from the dead.

  • 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.'"
