Rumors are swirling that Pica Pica Maize Kitchen is branching out from its original base at Napa's Oxbow Public Market to the Mission. SFoodie's source puts the spinoff of the Venezuelan arepa maker somewhere near Mission and 17th Street, but a Pica Pica spokeswoman wouldn't confirm that. S.F. isn't exactly terra incognita for the company, which showed up last year at the Folsom Street and Castro Street fairs, Bay to Breakers, and Carnaval. Besides stuffed arepas, Pica-Pica offers cachapas, filled corn pancakes, and a cornbread grilled cheese it calls the Maize'Wich. We'll let you know when and where they surface.

  • 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.'"
