Mission Street Food Spokesman Calls Report on Commonwealth Premature

Myint's so far mum. - JESSE FRIEDMAN/BEER & NOSH
Mission Street Food founder Anthony Myint isn't (yet) returning calls, after yesterday's Grub Street report that MSF's full-time charity-driven restaurant ― called Commonwealth, according to GS ― will land in the shuttered El Herradero at 2224 Mission (at 18th St.). We did manage a quick word this morning with Mission Burger's Danny Bowien, who told us any news about Commonwealth was premature, suggesting Myint probably isn't ready to talk, either to confirm or clarify (GS added a correction to the original post, suggesting that Commonwealth's opening is further off than the six weeks it originally reported). Indeed, a March 3 update on Kickstarter revealed that MSF had raised only $5,835 of the bare-minimum $10K it has to accrue by May 5, suggesting that yeah, there's a chance that Commonwealth might not get off the ground at all, much less on a time schedule countable in weeks. Or, for that matter, even close to being able to ink a lease.

  • 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.'"
