  • Kosher crash: Boccalone prosciutto ice cream with Manischewitz sorbet.
Yesterday ― Day Three of Hanukkah ― we found ourselves at Humphry Slocombe (2790 Harrison at 24th St.), facing perhaps the most perverse juxtaposition of frozen goodness this godless city has ever conceived: a scoop of Manischewitz sorbet all up on a scoop of Boccalone prosciutto ice cream. An arch violation of kosher dietary laws, like we said, but only in conception. The flavors were perfect for each other, the tallowy richness of the slightly salty ice cream punctuated by the tang of Concord grape. It was a commingling that made each flavor better than it would've been solo ― like Natalie and Tootie on The Facts of Life, BFFs in nature's law, if not in Yahweh's.

  • 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.'"
