  • Kim Jong Grillin/Facebook
Food trucks are so popular right now, it's almost harder to find a truck that doesn't serve lunch. The names are getting pretty awesome, too:

Kim Jong Grillin'

City: Portland

Why it's awesomely named: Korean barbecue named after the home country's most notorious oppressor? Ballsy in the best way.

  • Chairman Bao
Chairman Bao

City: San Francisco

Why it's awesomely named: The Chairman is keeping the dictator/food truck mashup alive in an even splashier way than the mostly stationary Kim Jong. Enjoy it now, for trademark trouble might be afoot.

  • 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.'"
