We may have to wait for Tamearra Dyson's animal-free soul food joint Souley Vegan to reopen in a new location in Oakland (301 Broadway at Third St.), but fortunately we don't have to wait for her cooking. Dyson still offers ready-made meals at the Grand Lake Saturday farmers' market and, on this side of the bay, in the refrigerator at Rainbow Grocery (1745 Folsom at Division). Her hearty red beans and rice ($4.29) packs big bursts of garlic and spice, with cooked tomatoes that have a pleasant bite without crossing into squishy territory. Readers of the East Bay Express voted Souley Vegan the East Bay's best soul food last year, a real feat when you realize the competition had trotters to give them a leg up.

  • 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.'"
