  • Come on -- you've watched trashier TV before.
We admit it. With so many food shows taping in these parts lately, we've relegated Chefs vs. City to the inner chip recesses of the DVR machine, back where Jamie at Home mingles with old eps of Breaking Bad.

Tonight's installment takes place in the city - like, our city. Incanto chef Chris Cosentino and New York chef Aaron Sanchez do their (never seen it, so we're flying without lessons here) Amazing-Race-meets-Smackdown-with-Bobby-Flay thing up and down the streets of S.F., competing with two locals in a series of food-themed battles. Here's Food Network's official, typo-scarred description:

Chefs Aaron Sanchez and Chris Cosentino explore Chris' hometown of San Franciso [sic] and take on two local chefs: Anna Wankel and Melissa Perello. In five Bay Area food challenges, the teams endure a bread fight at the famous Boudin Bakery, eat one of cities [sic] spiciest dishes and build a massive meat puzzle at the California Culinary Academy. All bets are off as the teams discover San Francisco dining in a new and unexpected way.

Set your DVRs -- we know you ain't rushing home from the beer gardens of Lucky 13 or the Pilsner Inn at 10 p.m. to watch this one live. Or, um, if you do? Don't tell.

  • 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.'"
