Venerable public affairs forum The Commonwealth Club is revisiting the topic of street food after its tremendous growth over the past year. Moderator Matt Cohen has been the catalyst for much of that via his Off the Grid mobile food events; he'll provide an overview of the current scene and its economies above and below ground, with the help of Shakirah Simley (Slow Jams), Iso Rabins (forageSF), and Margarita Rojas (La Cocina). After the talk, audience and panelists will hightail it down the street to 111 Minna for an after-party featuring sampling and food for sale from local carts.

This program follows up the 2009 Commonwealth Club panel The Street Food Movement: SF Hearts the Cart, which SFoodie moderated; listen to audio from that discussion and check out a nice recap of the panel and after-party.

  • 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.'"
