  • At a house party last fall, Maki busted out fried chicken.
Coming off what had to have been a narrow defeat at Cochon 555, Bi-Rite chef and butcher Morgan Maki is tackling a less-demanding preparation. This Friday evening, July 2, instead of dismembering and curing, braising, and roasting an entire hog, Maki is making chili dogs ― at a show at a large pink house tucked between the Mission District and Potrero Hill.

Knowing Maki and his tendency to turn out sublime renditions of traditional fare ― whether fried chicken or po' boys ― these will be a far cry from pallid ballpark standards, featuring wieners supplied by butcher-about-town Ryan Farr, a man who probably occupies a special, particularly fiery seat in the depths of piggy hell. The dogs will be served at 7 p.m.; acoustic music from Low Red Land and special guests will follow at 9 p.m. Admission is a mere $5. Bring your own vapid domestic lagers. For the address (hint, hint: It's very, very close to Jack's Club) and further instruction, please write

  • 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.'"
