Bacon burger and doughnut lovers unable to make it to Massachusetts this weekend, you may be able to get some visual love from the Craz-E Burger lighting up news channels and blogs lately. It was Headline News where SFoodie first locked eyes with all 1,500 calories of Craz-E. Can't claim it was love at first bite, but the sight, anyway, of a grilled glazed doughnut with two pieces of crisp bacon, gooey cheese, and a beef patty nestled inside had us all googly-eyed with savory-sweet anticipation.

The Craz-E made its debut at the Big EZ Café, a concession stand at The Big E in Springfield, Mass., otherwise known as the Eastern States Exposition (it ends this weekend). The fair features appearances by Seether, Bret Michaels, and Foghat, which should give you some idea of the audience for the Craz-E Burger. According to the Big E blog, Marty Brownsey of West Seneca, New York, came up with the "Craz-E" moniker in a naming contest on Facebook. Brownsey beat out the aptly named "Heart Attack on a Bun" and somewhat lamer "The E-Normous."

  • 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.'"
