Cafe Bastille, nestled in the outdoor-focused restaurant row on Belden Place, is a great spot to grab what might be our fleeting rays of summer during actual summertime. Our summer spirits were lifted this week by the restaurant's Le Basilic, a blend of Citadelle gin, sugar, lime juice, and basil leaves that renders the drink a vibrant green. If you don't feel like too much of a tourist over there, you can probably persuade yourself you are on holiday after a few sips.

Cafe Bastille 22 Belden (at Bush), 986-5673

  • 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.'"
