  • The pie was a no-show.
SFoodie has pie on its face and sincerely apologizes to any readers who sought out pie Friday at the Rite Spot (2099 Folsom at 17th St.). Last Thursday we reported on Pie Lady Sunde's plight, and hyped the Pie Friday scheduled for Dec. 11. Turns out we ended up being served up a big slice of WTF pie. Unbeknownst to us, the Pie Lady had a change of heart and canceled her participation in any more Pie Fridays at the Rite Spot. Here's her full e-mail response:
Thanks so much for mentioning Pie Fridays and my blog. I thought that was so cool. I did cancel Pie Fridays permanently kind of out of the blue. Well, you read my blog, my spirit just got broken at the Rite Spot. I just couldn't bear the thought of doing one more thing to contribute to the owner making any extra money at all. It's always been a labor of love for me and I never got more than the cost of the pies from him so the thought of spending 10 hours baking pies for a guy that spray paints the windows black was my breaking point.Thanks again for your generous mention and thoughtful timing of mentioning it right before the actual Friday.


Okay, Pie Lady. Whatevs.

  • 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.'"
