  • 2010: Year of the cock?
Local hospitality and restaurant consulting firm Andrew Freeman & Co. has just released its annual national forecasting report for 2010, its third annual Trend Watch List. We got a kick out of learning that skewers are totally hot, PLTs -- P standing for pancetta or pork belly -- are the hipper version of BLTs, and mackerel is the next "it" fish. 

Chief among the snazzier soundbites this year: "Sriracha is the new salsa," "iced tea is the new water," and "forget chicken noodle soup; it's pho, for sure."

Check out the whole Trend Watch List in handy PDF form.

  • 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.'"
