  • Curbside Coffee, now setting up weekday mornings at Folsom and Spear streets.

Five months after debuting at Off the Grid, mobile java vendor Curbside Coffee has a permanent spot Downtown. In Rincon Hill, actually, that place where the Financial District merges with SOMA. The Rincon Hill blog broke the news today that Curbside has a stretch of dedicated curb space at Folsom and Spear streets, near insanely popular Los Compadres taco truck, weekdays from 7:30 a.m. till about 2 p.m.

Jordan Greene, Curbside's owner (with Phil Nguyen), was a one-time corporate guy for Peet's. Greene and Nguyen use beans from San Rafael roaster Weaver's, begun by Peet's prodigy John Weaver; though Curbside's specialty is cà phê sua da, Vietnamese iced coffee. The Weaver's roasting style wouldn't necessarily fly in the Third Wave Mission, but Curbside should find a faithful fan base Downtown. Congratulations, guys.

  • 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.'"
