We now interrupt your browsing pleasure with an update from the Cochon 555 folks. As they prepare to apply the full heft of their culinary acumen at next weekend's massive pork party, some of San Francisco's most swine-savvy chefs have been introduced to their 140-pound muses. While the two parties have not exchanged e-mail addresses, instant-messaged, or met for lunch in a safe public setting, the people and their heritage breed pigs of destiny have hooked up ― on paper, at least. Lovers of loin, champions of (head)cheese ― here's what the homecoming court looks like for Cochon 555:

• Perbacco's Staffan Terje and a Swabian Hall from Rustik Rooster

• Pizzeria Delfina's Anthony Strong and a Gloucester Old Spot from Clark Summit Farm

• Namu's Dennis Lee and a Yorkshire from Gleason Ranch

• Flour + Water's Thomas McNaughton and a Berkshire/Duroc from Devil's Gulch Ranch

• Bi-Rite's Morgan Maki and a Mangalitsa from Susuin Valley Farm

  • 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.'"
