Now, we're far from a spirits expert, but we did know that Tempus Fugit is a rock star in that world. We learned this via an interview last year with the incomparable Marilyn Manson, in which he informed us that Mansinthe, his very own brand of absinthe, was a collaboration with the Petaluma-based company. At a recent amaro tasting in the gorgeous CHOW kitchen, we had a chance to try TF's forthcoming Liqueur de Violettes. Imagine a liqueur that would actually be delightful on the rocks, or as a component of a cocktail. There's little more to this than sugar, French violets, and alcohol, and just a few sips left us dizzily daydreaming on possibilities for drinks, sauces, and syrups. Fingers crossed, it could be on the market by fall.

  • 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.'"
