  • Terroir was open last night, but where was Spencer on the Go?
Insider sites were burning with the news: Chef Laurent Katgely was taking French bistro Chez Spencer mobile, and in a taco truck no less. Starting last night, Spencer on the Go was slated to crank out escargot puffs, sweetbreads, and curried frog legs from a location across Folsom from the wine shop and bar Terroir, which had agreed to allow indoor noshing of Spencer's goodies. SFoodie showed up last night, but where in the world was Spencer?

Today, Erin Katgely explained the hold-up: licensing red tape. "They wanted us to get one more thing before we started," she said. Plus their logo has yet to be applied to the truck, a used taco wagon her husband Laurent scored in Stockton. "He looked at a lot of them," she said. "In the end he bought a taco and then he bought the truck!" Katgely said the truck should be open for business across from Terroir starting next Thursday, May 21, 6 p.m.-midnight. The couple is also working to get Spencer on the Go into the Tuesday and Thursday markets at the Ferry Building (the Thursday market is scheduled to begin July 2). Don't want to be disappointed?

  • 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.'"
