It's La Escuelita night at Pisco Latin Lounge, a kind of aural bouquet of lush paper roses with a heady whiff of retro Latino, pop sintetico, and old school dance stuff (DJ Juan Data starts up about 8 p.m.). Meantime, you can suck down drink specials spiked with Lotus vodka: a cucumber martini and a pomegranate vodka mojito (both $7). We know -- a bit pricier than two-buck PBRs, but Pisco is a classy place, and it's altogether likely that if you do meet somebody, he'll be a lot classier than some beercan crusher in bad sneakers. If you really want to impress, you can order an Anti-Todo, a mashup of vodka, raspberry liqueur, and a boatload of antioxidant juices -- kind of like Botox you can sip through a straw. It's $12, considerably cheaper than a trip to some plastic surgery clinic in South America.

  • 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.'"
