  • More than the Acme sign is getting split.
Even before the remains of Acme Chophouse are, well, ashes, much less gone cold, comes word of what'll take its place. Turns out the sprawling Acme space (24 Willie Mays Plaza at AT&T Park) will be chopped into two unequal parts to house separate eateries. In the space along Third Street, owner Traci Des Jardins will install a Mijita Cocina Mexicana, sister to the one in the Ferry Building. The rest of the space will relaunch as Public House, a sort of sports bar with grass-fed burgers, pulled-pork sliders, crab cakes, and a huge selection of beers and cask ales. Acme chef Thom Fox and GM John Epperheimer will stay on for Public House. Acme operating partner Bon Appetit will continue on with Public House, too. Expect prices to be a bit fan-friendlier that Acme's - a Des Jardins spokesperson told us the tab at Public House will be "more in alignment" with sports bar prices. No word on when the build-out is to begin, but -- naturally -- there'll be a mega push to wrap up construction for the Giants first pitch at AT&T Park on April 9.

  • 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.'"
