The San Francisco arrival of Venezuelan street food from Adriana Lopez Vermut is almost here. On Thursday, there's a media launch event in the Mission for the soon to be opened Pica Pica Maize Kitchen at 401 Valencia (at 15th St.). Yes, it's a revamp of that former Mi Lindo Yucatan space. Last week, Thrillist detailed the "corn-heavy grub" of the 30 seat restaurant. Pica Pica spokesman Kevin Blum confirmed to SFoodie that next Monday, May 10, will likely be the official opening date for the public, with both lunch and dinner menus. That sounds officially like a countdown for a mass of arepas (grilled corn flour cake), filled corn cachapas, and other Latin-style street snacks. There'll also be cervezas (five) on tap, and sangria to wash them all down.

  • 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.'"
