Foreign Cinema (2534 Mission at 21st St.) is busting out the lederhosen and offering two Oktoberfest dinners, tomorrow night and again on Thursday, Oct. 29. Chefs Gayle Pirie and John Clark are cooking special three-course meals designed as odes to Germany and the hearty, traditional cuisine it's known for. Tomorrow night's starter is a beet and cucumber salad, followed by Wiener schnitzel with fried potatoes, and spiced apple cake with praline and cider sauce. (The Oktoberfest dinners are available side-by-side with Foreign Cinema's regular menu.) A choice of Weihenstephaner Festbier or Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse Dunkel is available if you want to go full Oktoberfest, beer-wise. Peeks at the lederhosen-clad host is included with the price of the meal.

  • 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.'"
