We would normally go somewhere like the Boom Boom Room to hear music, not to be turned on to a new drink we like, but we learned this week that the late blues legend John Lee Hooker's Fillmore institution is a place for both. We were intrigued by the sound of wasabi and ginger ale and prepared for a lively burn, but then learned that it was actually Wasabé, a sake-infused vodka, rather than the Japanese root. Simple, double-potent, and ― right now, at least ― only five bucks.

Boom Boom Room: 1601 Fillmore (at Geary), 673-8000.

  • 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.'"
