From the cow dung-littered fields of Vacaville comes a new sort of pie altogether ― with roots in Texas, nearly 1,600 miles from Solano County. As of this morning, an enterprising Craigslist vendor is hawking Texas-style sweet potato pies, which typically taste like well-spiced pumpkin pies, albeit earthier and a little more luscious, in our humble opinion. We haven't verified the quality but someone should. Pick up a baked one for $8.50 or have it delivered for a small extra charge. You can get frozen ones for $8. Some might even prefer buying the filling alone for $6 to pipe into their own pastry shells.

  • 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.'"
