Oops. In SF Weekly's 7-Day Dish e-newsletter, we described a benefit for leak-stricken Gulf fisherman: Mission restaurant Maverick would be setting aside proceeds May 20 for the Greater New Orleans Foundation's Gulf Coast oil spill fund. Turns out plans have changed, says Maverick's Scott Youkilis. The benefit's now tentatively slated for a date in early June, and looks to include more than just Maverick. Youkilis says he's started lining up buy-in by other S.F. restaurants; similar benefits will go down in Chicago, Washington D.C., Ann Arbor, Mich., and a handful of other cities. Youkilis says Maverick will probably offer either a portion of all proceeds that night, or all the proceeds on certain Gulf seafood items (flounder, shrimp). We'll key you in about details ― including other participating local eateries ― as they emerge.

  • 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.'"
