Like indy movies, indy booze has so infiltrated restaurant bar walls and home liquor cabinets that it might not fit the profile of obscure, exactly. Still, tomorrow's 2009 Indy Spirits Expo at Mighty (119 Utah at 15th St.) offers the chance to crawl deep into one micro-distilled bottle after another -- bottles you can't just pick up at the corner market. Think Tuthilltown vodka, distilled from Hudson Valley cider, or 44° North vodka, distilled in Idaho from local spuds. Or Choya's umeshu, the Japanese fruit liqueur flavored with ume plums. Interesting, right? Locavore spirit infused with the wonky charm of distillers committed to creating something it'd be sacrilege to drown in Ocean Spray and call a Crantini. The Expo is on from 6p.m. to 9 p.m. (doors open at 5). General admission is $50, $75 for VIP (which gets you in an hour early). Buy tix here.

  • 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.'"
