Diedrich shaped and created an impressive program during his time at the Burritt Room, making the search for a replacement a formidable task. Aside from regularly packing the house and making the hotel bar a cocktail destination and winner of our Best of SF 2011, he was recently named one of the Chronicle's Bar Stars of 2011. Diedrich is slated to defend the bar at the Bar Room Brawl cocktail competition next month at the Tales of the Cocktail conference. Will the Burritt Room be forced to forfeit the challenge, or will it find a champion in time? We're on the edge of our seats.

  • 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.'"
