Our favorite morsel from the blogs.

It's alive!: The Bold Italic's Reyhan Harmanci flirts with FrankenPho, a mashup of her favorite elements from five local joints slinging the Viet noodle soup. Yeah, so what if Harmanci's ultimate formula seems a bit jumble-y ― it's slurping through the city's Phở Five that's the point here. We'll let Harmanci voice the setup (after the jump):

Like the original monster, FrankenPho is an unholy thing, and I know that my elements aren't to everyone's taste. I also mean no disrespect to the fine purveyors of pho from whom I've pillaged for materials: your whole soup is a beautiful thing. But I gotta say, FrankenPho was literally a dream come true. For one glorious afternoon, a friend and I drove around S.F. on a pho'tastic voyage.

Broth, noodles, meat, veggies ― think of it as a fantasy football league you douse in Sriracha. Ideas on constructing your own unholy mashup here.

  • 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.'"
