  • OnTuesday nights, Adobo Hobo will bring a taste of Filipino to Cole Valley.
Cole Valley's street-food experiment is expanding. Two weeks after SF Delicious and Mad4Madeleines began selling on Thursday nights from Ashbury Market's deli annex, more vendors are making an appearance. Tomorrow marks the Tuesday night debut of another pack of pavement cuisiniers: Adobo Hobo, The Gumbo Man, and Sweet Constructions.

Ashbury owner Resat Turgut says that, like Thursdays, the market's Tuesday dinners are an experiment to scope neighborhood demand. And he says he'd like to extend the experiment to other nights of the week ― like, potentially, seven, with different groups of vendors selling on different nights. For tomorrow, Adobo Hobo's Jason Rotairo says the company's usual chicken leg adobo will be on offer, as well as adobo tacos. Something new, too: achara, jars of Philippines-style pickled carrots, the recipe courtesy of Rotairo's grandma from Cavite.

  • 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.'"
