  • This morning at Little Skillet: Owner (and new chef) Jay Foster.
If you've been wondering who'd be taking over the kitchen at Little Skillet from bounced chef-manager Christian Ciscle, the suspense is over. This morning, owner Jay Foster told us he's now manning the neo-Southern SOMA takeaway. Saying he thought it was time to take the food up a notch, Foster's influence is already being felt in specials a tad more complex than those during the reign of Ciscle. (Case in point: today's po'boy of short ribs, leeks, aïoli, and pickled cabbage.) Foster said his involvement at Little Skillet won't change anything at Farmer Brown (he's chef-owner there, too), where for the past four months chef Bryan Black has been running the day-to-day. Foster's new initiative to put his thumbprint on Little Skillet ― and bring the food more in line with FB ― suggests there were creative differences with Ciscle, who departed earlier this week.

  • 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.'"
