It's a good news/bad news thing: Yes, as we reported Monday, an expanded Bi-Rite Creamery reopened today ― that's the good news. But the soft-serve window won't open till Friday. By the way, the Creamery's expanded indoor seating? It's been bumped up from three seats to 10, meaning that, at any given time on a Sunday, only, say, 53 expectant ice cream lovers will be queued up on 18th Street (instead of the inevitable 60). But those 10 lucky sitters will have something really, really nice to perch on as they experience twinges of schadenfreude for standers: A Bi-Rite press release called the new seating "a long bench of lustrous, salvaged, wind-fallen Cyprus wood." Whether that means wood from the Mediterranean island or from a cypress tree, we can't wait to feel it beneath us.

  • 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.'"
