  • Blarf -- the sourdough starter that'll swallow up San Francisco.
Our favorite morsel from the blogs.

Rising star: Bridget Huber files a portrait of Sour Flour yeast maven Danny Gabriner for Mission Loc@l. The 24-year-old ex-programmer has dreams to eclipse Acme, with the help of his sourdough starters Blarf, Dulce, and Wheaties -- SFoodie's Tamara Palmer reported on Sour Flour back in September. These days, Gabriner is raising funds to launch a commercial bakery, one that'll posit breadstuffs as the city's community center, even as he's giving away loaves and bagels and imparting bread-making know-how to any who ask. It's a very San Francisco story, a mix of entrepreneurship and aspiration for an idealized community whose hub is the table, and mad energy. Read Huber's piece here. Believe us, it's not the last you'll read of Danny Gabriner.

  • 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.'"
