Who could resist the appeal of a restaurant that ionizes and energizes its water and projects inspirational art onto the walls? Not me. Especially when it's a new vegetarian restaurant (with vegan options) in a town that could use more and when it's serving lunch in an isolated corner of SOMA.

All were factors that brought me back for multiple meals at Source, the subject of this week's restaurant review. Does the restaurant fulfill its aspiration to be a "multidemensional dining experience?" Perhaps, but a little more attention to the most tangible three dimensions would be welcome. Nevertheless, Source is a pleasant lunch spot with decent veggie burgers and pizzas baked in an oven whose mouth is shaped like Chinese dragon. And sometimes ― say, 12:30 in the afternoon ― that's really all you need. Just watch out for that Cosmic Brain Trip.

  • 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.'"
