SF Food Wars wants you to share the burn. The cooking competition with a hungry following has put out the call for competitors at its next throwdown, The Great Salsa ChampionChip, slated for Sunday, Sept. 12, at Ferry Plaza. The CUESA-cosponsored event benefits both CUESA's farmer scholarship fund and the S.F. Food Bank.

The salsa slam marks an expansion for Food Wars. Organizer Jeannie Choe says this time, 300 tickets will go on sale, up from the usual 200-250. At $16, it's a bit pricier, too ($16, instead of $10-$15), since it's a benefit for two groups. Tickets go on sale next Monday.

If you get the nod to be one of the 20 competitors, you'll get $15 worth of produce from the Ferry Plaza farmers' market. Casa Sanchez is donating the chips. To be considered, e-mail with the following: your name, the name of your salsa, a description of it, your phone number, and your e-mail. Oh, and buena suerte.

  • 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.'"
