  • Could some of the City's best egg rolls come from a BBQ joint?
Usually, when we visit Memphis Minnie's Barbecue Joint and Smokehouse (576 Haight at Steiner), there's little anyone or anything can do to distract us from the fried catfish and banana pudding. We've barely taken the time to explore the menu beyond those personal delights before last night, when we discovered a strange East-West fusion of sorts. Minnie's BBQ pork rolls ($5.95) are basically the ultimate egg roll, filled with a generous heap of smoked, pulled pork, fried to an almost dangerous crisp, and served with a chipotle aioli. Here's hoping that spare rib chow mein is 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.'"
