Around Town:

Potrero Hill baked good newbie Baked. (1415 18th St.) opened a few weeks ago, and the big question (besides "how many cupcakes can I stuff in my mouth?") is: What's with the period at the end of the name? "It's just baked, period. Like, that's all there is, baked goods," says co-owner Tina Fisher, who opened the bakery with partner Andrea Ortega. "We were just throwing out silly names. My friends jumped right on it. Plus, the name itself has a nice double meaning, especially here in San Francisco. It will be good for T-shirt sales down the road." But hawking T-shirts takes a definite back seat to the goods themselves: Baked. specializes in sweetbreads, coffeecakes, and cookies, with a focus on reasonable prices. Most everything costs below $2. "We also have two of the best cookies around," Fisher continues. "Peanut butter chocolate chip, with Reese's peanut butter cups in it, and chocolate cappuccino chip. Aside from the occasional cheddar scone, we don't do any savories. No croissants. We're going for the dessert crowd." Go ahead, awaken your inner stoner. Baked. is open Monday through Wednesday 7:30 to 3:30 p.m.; and Thursday, Friday, Saturday 7:30 to 2:30 p.m., then 4:30 to 8 p.m. For more info call 415-826-9455.

  • 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.'"
