Inside out: We missed it last week ― Jun-Blog's report on Outside In 3, the street-cart homage to Filipino food at D.C.'s Mink Bar. Tamara Palmer posted video, but as a last look back, check out Jun-Blog's pic report. Blogger Jun Belen focused on a trio of creative offerings: Kitchenette's vaguely ceviche-like kinilaw, Soul Cocina's ginataang, and ube-filled coconut-lime gobs from Gobba Gobba Hey. And even though this is a look back, for blogger Jun Belen, it was something of a look ahead. Belen:

I was actually intrigued and thrilled when I first found out that the carts were doing Filipino food. I think Filipino food is so underrepresented even in a city as diverse as San Francisco. There are so many interesting local flavors and local ingredients that deserve so much more attention and affection.
Will Outside In 3 prove a watershed in the re-imagining of Filipino food in S.F.? Probably not. But it did suggest a new willingness to adapt what's still, even here, a little-known cuisine, turning it inside out for the uninitiated and the not. Definitely feels like something's stirring.

  • 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.'"
