The first day of the lunar calendar is celebrated in Korea (among other countries), where it is called Seollal. Sinto plans to share a Korean family tradition of making soup with kimchi mandu (dumplings). Guests will help make this dish as well as nokdu-jeon (mung bean pancakes), all while drinking as much mae-sil ju (green plum liquor) as you can while still being able to cook.

  • 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.'"
