Name: Kettle Corn
Brand: Gold Rush
Origin: Benicia
Found at: Other Avenues (3930 Judah at 44th Ave.)
Cost: $3.99
Ingredients: Organic popcorn, organic expeller pressed soybean oil, organic evaporated cane juice, sea salt.

The word: From Bay Area farmers' markets to wide-screen distribution at retail spots like Whole Foods and Long's Drugs, Gold Rush kettle corn is a local, independent success story. 
Tasting notes: In contrast to the many cloying kettle corn varieties on the market, these fat, addictive kernels hold a mercifully light and sweet glaze.
Buy it again? Mos def.
Extra credit: If sugar isn't on the agenda, Gold Rush's newer sea salted variety hits the spot.

  • 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.'"
