Are You Ready for Some Football? No?

Contrary to what you might expect, the Stupor Bowl Heavy Metal Chili Cookoff looks to be as rigorously refereed as the big game. Here’s a few rules: “All chili must be in a crockpot.” “No straight-arming DJ Foodcourt.” “All chili shall be given a heavy metal name.” “All parties must listen to see if half-time entertainers the Who are reckless and thrilling or simply pleasant and sort of sad. (Also: Will Dave Grohl be playing drums? Because we wouldn’t be surprised if Dave Grohl were suddenly just there, onstage, with the Who, playing drums).” Actually, we made several of those rules up — we stormed the field! — but not the ones about the crockpot and the naming: Last year, Nordic Flesh Feast took home first prize. Behold, it was a white chili. Another real rule: You have to make four quarts of chili. To give you an idea, that’s eight pints, the measurement strata where real chili-making, and Super Bowl drinking, begins.

  • 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.'"
