  • Hirigoyen: Basque master.
Cookbook fans, rev up your engines and head over the Golden Gate Bridge tonight for a tasty book signing. Piperade/Bocadillos chef Gerald Hirigoyen recently authored (with Lisa Weiss) Pintxos: Small Plates in the Basque Tradition (Ten Speed Press, $24.95). It's a cookbook about pintxos (peench-ohs), the Basque term for tapas or finger foods. Recipes include ham dust, aïoli, duck breast with oranges and green olives, and a yummy-sounding fried chicken sandwich. Pantry and wine suggestions, too.

Hirigoyen, who has a Basque background, is also the author of The Basque Kitchen. Tonight's appearance is from 6 to 8 p.m. at The Tyler Florence Shop (59 Throckmorton at Corte Madera, Mill Valley) -- see with your own eyes the scene of the missing fork. TyFlo is scheduled to do an intro, followed by Hirigoyen and Weiss conducting the signing and a Q & A.

  • 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.'"
