NewTree, a Belgian chocolatier with its American outpost in San Anselmo, introduced its new line of Alpha chocolate bars at the Fancy Food Show. Here's a sweeter way to get your omega 3 fatty acids (mostly through the inclusion of flax seeds) without having to go the route of smelly fish oil. The Piment is a dark chocolate bar with flax, puffed rice, and a serious, lingering chile bite. Look for this soon at local shops that stock New Tree, such as Rainbow Grocery (1745 Folsom).

  • 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.'"
