  • Korean tacos began appearing a few months ago.
The relentless patter of rain sloshing the street outside our living room window has subsided, if only for a few minutes. There is a hopeful brightness behind the clouds, but we're wasting no time. We're pulling on our boots. Our favorite liquor store's lovely little deli counter has Korean steak tacos for $3 apiece and we're fixing to grab a few. For months now, Rhea's Deli (800 Valencia St. at 19th St.) has been turning out some of the biggest, drippiest, and loveliest sandwiches in the neighborhood, if not the city. We were especially partial to the pork katsu with pickled jalapenos, but now we're changing our order ― to tacos, of course, a no-brainer really. In the words of a bloated, addled Jim Morrison (as inhabited by Val Kilmer) towards the end of Oliver Stone's The Doors, Come on; let's get some tacos.

  • 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.'"
