A celebration of Filipino foods is the premise of the the Asian Culinary Forum's weekend-long symposium of classes, panels, and tastings, happening May 15-16. The cooking class that covers traditional sour ingredients such as fruits and natural vinegars is already full, but you can still grab a seat for the "Adobo Throw-Down" ($20) on Saturday night that includes Lumaya music and "innovative variations of the theme," as well as puzzle the future of Filipino food at Sunday's chefs' panel ($40). The cheapest event on the bill is the lit reading on Sunday afternoon, titled "Eating Our Own Words" ($3-$5) and includes poems, fiction, and essays about family and food from Barbara Jane Reyes, Rashaan Alexis Meneses, Aileen Suzara, Aimee Suzara, Lizelle Festejo, Yael Villafranca and Lisa Suguitan Melnick. Details after the jump.

  • 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.'"
