Everyone knows there's burger dualism, two irreducible types you scarf on radically different occasions. The first you order from the Nopa barstool you were aggressive enough to ingratiate your ass cheek onto: Marin Sun Farms, brioche bun, house-made pickles, the char-grilled taste of $13 luxury. The second you score for lunch, from a place where the guy working the flattop griddle wears a ball cap and short-sleeve cook shirt. If you're lucky, it'll be as good as the burger cooked up at Holy Grill ― the Epiphany, say, a cheeseburger dripping semi-molten cheddar, its patty hefty enough to make a single sandwich suffice, on a sesame bun laminated with so many seeds it approaches halvah unctuousness. It's enough to challenge burger dualism, if not exactly topple it.

Holy Grill 659 Townsend (at Eighth St.), 431-4659

  • 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.'"
