If you thought chutney is only from India, get ready to be schooled. This week, 18 Reasons (593 Guerrero at 18th St.) goes all Celtic chutney on us with a special tasting of McQuade's Celtic Chutneys paired with wine and artisan cheese. The event is Thursday, October 1, 7-9 p.m.; suggested donation is $5 for 18 Reasons members, $10 for non-members.

McQuade's chutneys are hand made by chef Alison McQuade, in San Francisco. The Glasgow native uses her granny's recipes -- Granny McQuade was a well-known cook who incorporated fresh ingredients into her food, apparently, a tradition the younger McQuade is now continuing. Her first customer was one of the cowgirls from Cowgirl Creamery, who wanted to order 60 of each flavor. Taste and see what the chutney hoopla is all about -- will it be pineapple-red chili chutney that gets you going? Or perhaps a little fig and ginger? McQuade herself will be on hand to answer your burning chutney questions.

  • 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.'"
