Looks like the situation is messier than a cream-cheese-and-jelly bagel at Terra in Hayes Valley ― bagel maker Philip Roland recently departed, just weeks after the place opened, and months after leaving the Lower Haight after a landlord dispute. In an e-mail today, Rolands' partner, Jennifer Westmoreland, raised the specter of a lawsuit, presumably against Terra's Susan Lui. Westmoreland: "Unfortunately Phil and I were not able to provide the same quality customer service and baked good as we did in the Lower Haight, so we left. At this time I cannot give details because we are pending a lawsuit over ownership, the use of Phil's name and unetical [sic] business practice. We are currently looking for a new spot and will keep everyone updated." She asked that we mention that the duo are seeking new investors. Done.

  • 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.'"
