Is Mission Burger closing? Mission Mission opened the throttle on the rumor machine when it floated a tantalizingly opaque post of burger lack at Duc Loi. The truth? Well, sure it's closing. MB fry cook Danny Bowien is leaving at the end of May to get married in Seoul, which means that, yes, no Mission Burger in June. And after that, when Bowien returns and Commonwealth should be due to launch? Well, as Anthony Myint told us last month, new plans are coalescing, but he's not ready to go public. It does sound like, just as Myint told us last month, Mission Street Food could become a once-a-week event. As for Mission Burger? It's probably a good idea to get your fill of the Blumenthalian granulated tower before Bowien leaves to get hitched.

  • 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.'"
