Gotta get that pork poster! For those who can't afford to bid for the chance to have 4505 Meats' chef Ryan Farr conduct an in-house butchery demo (an S.F. Street Food Festival auction item), consider shelling out a little over $35 for a limited-edition letterpress porcine piggy poster that can find a permanent place in your home. For swine fans, the images could be a natural addition to a kitchen, office, or other wall space. Farr worked with Hatch Print -- one of the oldest working letterpress shops in the country -- to come up with the series of three prints.

Peruse the posters at the 4505 Web site, but keep in mind that it can be tough to choose. For this blogger, there was something about "Crispity Clouds of Porkaliciousness" that caused it to barely edge out "Frisco Pig Was a Friend of Mine." though "Pork, The Noun" wasn't without its charms. Each poster measures about 14" by 22", and is signed and fingerprinted (in lard) by Farr. Once you place an order, expect a Pay Pal invoice from 4505. The price includes the cost of shipping in a secure mailing tube.

That lard fingerprint is a cool concept. No telling if a picture framer will feel the same way.

  • 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.'"
