Another local food business raising money for Japan disaster relief: Peko-Peko Japanese Catering, at Wednesday's Pop-Up General Store in Oakland. From Peko-Peko's Sylan Mishima Brackett:

Although we were planning only to sell Japanese beef curry, the Peko Peko cooks and I have decided cook a few other things to raise money for earthquake relief. The income from our sales will be donated to a relief fund set up by the Fukushima Prefectural government.
Besides the beef curry ($12.50), Brackett's selling kombu tsukudani (pickled seaweed, $5), pork okazu (with miso from quake-stricken Sendai, $5), and ume and grapefruit zeri (jelly, $5). It's too late to preorder, but General Store organizers say there should be enough food for walk-ins to score.

When: Wed., Mar 16, 5-7 p.m.

Where: Grace Street Catering, 4629 Martin Luther King Jr. (at 47th St.), Oakland

  • 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.'"
