Quick: Get your ass to any nearby produce market and start scrambling like hell for pluots and huckleberries.

Originally scheduled for next Monday, the monthly Iron Cupcake Challenge is going down tonight, 7 p.m., at Leland Tea Company (1416 Bush at Polk). (Long story, something to do with host venue Leland Tea getting all bollixed up with street construction next week, making it inaccessible.) Tonight's theme? Summer/seasonal fruits.

For Iron Cupcake novices, here's the deal. You show up between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. with already baked cupcakes (at least two dozen minis), create a fetching display, announce your brilliant creation, and cross your fingers. All baker-contestants vote for the victor.

Note to the eventual winner: End-zone victory shuffles and cupcake spikes are strongly discouraged.

  • 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.'"
