Launched in November as a two-date pop-up to raise money for a Potrero Hill church and its food pantry, New Taste Marketplace has been greenlighted for monthly markets through summer. Organizer Elianna Friedman tells SFoodie over 200 shoppers showed up for the November market ― a fundraiser for Saint Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal church and its Food Pantry ― while more than 250 checked it out in December. "I was pleasantly surprised by the generosity of shoppers," Friedman writes by e-mail. "Both dates we raised over $800 for The Food Pantry and St. Gregory's."

The next New Taste Marketplace goes down Jan. 15, noon-5 p.m. Friedman expects to announce the vendor list later in the week.

  • 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.'"
