Cover your ears, pork haters. Lard's an essential ingredient at Mexican panaderias like La Victoria on 24th St. in the Mission -- it makes for incredibly short, crumbly pastries. As of today, it's come full circle, without ever leaving the neighborhood. Post-mod ice cream shop Humphry Slocombe announced via tweet that it'd baked off a big old batch of shortbread cookies enriched with lard from the salumeria Boccalone. Humphry owner Jake Godby told SFoodie the cookies contain a bit of cornmeal and rosemary, and cost $3.50 for four specimens. Score the crumbly, pork-scented goodness both at Humphry Slocombe (2790 Harrison at 24th St.) and Boccalone (Ferry Building Marketplace #21).

  • 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.'"
