  • Little Skillet threw its first street-food party on Ritch Street in August.
Today's food-cart benefit at the San Francisco Food Bank won't be the week's only charity event with street flavor. Little Skillet manager Christian Ciscle told SFoodie he's planning a benefit this Friday, October 2, for victims of recent flooding in the Philippines. Details are still forming, but Ciscle suggested the event would run from 5 to 8 p.m., with food carts parked near Little Skillet's takeout window at 360 Ritch (at Townsend). Check Little Skillet's Twitter feed for updates.

Ciscle said Little Skillet planned to donating 15 percent of its Friday evening sales (plus all tips) a flood relief agency TBD. He hoped cart vendors would make similar pledges. "San Francisco is the second largest concentration of people from the Philippines in the world," Ciscle said. "We all know people whose families are affected over there."

Tropical Storm Ketsana struck Manila on Saturday. The latest casualty figures put the dead at 246, with 2 million homes flooded.

  • 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.'"
