It's as gray and sodden as Northern Europe out there, so why not lunch on something with roots in Alsace? Ironside's flammenkucken flatbread is a pizza not exactly in the Cal-Med tradition. Moistened with crème frâiche, scattered with ridiculously sweet caramelized onions and hunks of bacon, it feels exactly right in the handsome gloom of Ironside's reclaimed industrial ambience. And if you can manage a pint of Trumer Pils to go with, why the gloom positively disappears.

Ironside 680A Second St. (at Townsend), 896-1127

  • 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.'"
