  • Mando Rayo: The mask helps hide the salsa burns.
If you see this man around the Mission, promise you'll be nice. And offer him a Tums.

Austin, Tex., taco evangelist Mando Rayo is engaged in an epic taco crawl through the Bay Area, and he'll be reporting his findings here. At TacoJournalism, a blog of tacos and taco culture, Rayo collaborates with taco homies Jarod Neece, Cornbiter Deluxe, and The Commish. They've been featured in the Austin American-Statesman and at, in the "Best of Austin Chronicles," and as part of Austin PBS affiliate KLRU's Docubloggers project, chronicling life in Central Texas.

How will the Mission's monster blunt burritos sit with El Mundo de Mando? Will La Taqueria's mix of hipsters and Marina cuties seem totally lame? Stay screwed in right here. Check out the TacoJournalism blog, and pay a neighborly visit on Facebook and Twitter. Don't be shy: Let Rayo know what to scarf next.

  • 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.'"
