What the hell is a "vivande"? It was an Italian takeaway food shop in the Middle Ages, long before restaurants existed. Carlo Middione's Fillmore Street food shop has been around almost since the Dark Ages -- well, since 1981, which is plenty dark for us. Get an O.G. taste of Upper Fillmore in SF Weekly food critic Meredith Brody's pick of Boscaiola, a sauté of fennel sausage, potato, peppers, and mushrooms with white wine, at Vivande, 2125 Fillmore (at Sacramento), 346-4430.

  • 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.'"
