Slumming: Bits + Bites' Jordan Mackay Q&As New York sommelier-turned taco-eating new Quince somm David Lynch. Who knew? We thought Lynch was the guy who made Blue Velvet, but it turns out he's the kind of bearded, brainy-looking ex-Babbo wine genius who sports a pink button-down and blazer on Mission Street, clutching what we're guessing is a $50 Chardonnay. Mackay asks him about the transition west, which, from the looks of things, hasn't yet included a vintage plaid-shirt-shopping spree at Buffalo Exchange. The takeaway? La Taqueria is the kind of place New Yorkers find brilliant, Michael Tusk is the kind of chef New Yorkers find brilliant, and Philz Coffee makes the kind of latte New Yorkers find brilliant. It all tells us more about New Yorkers than it does about S.F. Frankly, we're waiting for Lynch to lose the blazer and venture into a taqueria where you wouldn't dare tote even a screwcap white. Apparently unaware of his own irony, Lynch says, "San Francisco is perceived as somewhat precious, a little bit navel-gazing." Right.

  • 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.'"
