Eighty-sixed in the Excelsior: What killed the Broken Record? Yesterday, Hot Food Porn laid a burly man hug on the Geneva Avenue tavern that closed suddenly earlier this month, suggesting it was a victim of plain old chef burnout. Here's Porn: This is a late post, but 2 Fridays ago, the Broken Record duo unexpectedly left their post because as they told me in their own words, "we need a break, we've had 5 days off the last 9 months." We'd like to join Porn in giving ex-Record chefs Katharine Zacher and Ryan Ostler a biker-style fist bump. Rest up, hear?

Buzzkill: Forbes' James E. McWilliams takes on locavores -- what he calls the locavore myth, anyway. Before you grab your locally sourced wood cudgels to attack Mr. McWilliams, read what he has to say: Sussing out a food's carbon footprint is a hell of a lot more complex than merely counting food miles. Kinda comes down to figuring out what we value most: sustaining sub-Saharan farmers, say (they supply lots of veggies to Europe), or giving up meat one day a week. One thing not up for debate? Riding your bike to the farmers' market is good for everybody. And rainbows are pretty (that last one is ours).

  • 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.'"
