  • The slogans on Johnson's BBQ's windows are now an epitaph.

Johnson's Bar-B-Que on San Bruno closed last year after owner Joe Johnson passed away. But the storefront remains vacant for now, and SFoodie confesses we're relieved. Is there any way to get San Francisco's Historic Preservation Commission to designate the slogans on the windows a city landmark? (If the commission's all too eager to save the Gold Dust Lounge, why not?) Because we dread the day they're scraped away.

  • 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.'"
