  • Peko-Peko's Sylvan Mishima Brackett harvested the shoots in Livermore.
Peko-Peko is doing another totally cool Japanese food event this weekend. Tomorrow at Zinc Details on Fillmore ― at a party to promo the biodegradable paper dishes from Japanese company Wasara ― Peko-Peko's Sylvan Mishima Brackett is preparing fresh bamboo shoots. They're shoots Brackett gathered himself in Livermore, from a 2-acre grove with several bamboo varieties. Turns out a retired bamboo cultivator has been tending the grove for a couple of decades, and he invited Brackett in to gather the young spring shoots.

He'll be preparing them three ways tomorrow: in rice, fried with pork and panko, and simmered with wakame. Drop-dead cool details after the jump.

Event details:

Peko-Peko Fresh Bamboo Shoot Lunch

Date: Sat., April 17, 1-3 p.m.

Location: Zinc Details, 1905 Fillmore (at Bush), 776.-2100

Cost: $10

  • 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.'"
