  • Say adios to the loading dock, at least for one night
One of the biggest food stories in a year destined to be remembered for depressing restaurant closures is Kitchenette, which (in case you just blew in from Fresno) serves up amazing weekday lunches from a loading dock in Dogpatch. Brace yourselves, groupies: On Thursday, June 11, the Kitchenette team invades Mission Street Food, the twice-weekly restaurant phenom that was one of SF's biggest food stories of last year.

Kitchenette (and LRE Catering) chef and partner Douglas Monsalud told SFoodie the evening will feature a "colony concept" - foods originally from Spain, as interpreted in its various former colonies: Mexico, Argentina, even the Philippines. "It's not going to be a normal street-food menu," Monsalud said. "We do that kind of thing every day." Also behind the stoves that night: Kitchenette chef de cuisine Brian Dudley, formerly of Foreign Cinema. By the way, though this'll mark his first appearance at MSF, Monsalud goes way back with founder Anthony Myint: He once catered his wedding. Keep watching the MSF Web site for info.

Meanwhile, Kitchenette's popularity continues to be fierce. Monsalud reported that the loading dock got so swamped today, crowds cleaned them out by 12:45. Dayum!

  • 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.'"
