If your mind is as twisted as SFoodie's is, Fairfax's Seitan Family sounds slightly sinister -- at least until you remind yourself that there's nothing devilish about the wheat gluten product from which it takes its name. Anyway, these Seitanists produce a line of vegan empanadas worth tracking down, including seasonal specials like the kabocha squash and greens variety. The slightly sweet fall squash tastes like a cross between pumpkin and yam and gives these wheat flour dough triangles a slightly sweet finish. Find 'em at Other Avenues (2920 Judah at 44th Ave.) and Rainbow Grocery (1745 Folsom at 13th St.).

  • 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.'"
