Fans of Hawaiian cuisine won't want to miss tomorrow's Ninth Annual Hukilau Poke Festival and Spam Musubi Eating Contest. The popular neighborhood block party features live Hawaiian music, a poke recipe contest, food and drink specials, as well as giveaways and prizes for contest entrants. And don't miss what promises to be the most exiting event of the day, the Spam musubi-eating contest. Will anyone be able to break last year's world record of eight Spam musubi in three minutes set by local professional ultramarathoner Chikara Omine? He does competitive eating in his spare time, finishing fourth last month in L.A.'s gyoza-eating championship. Aloha!

  • 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.'"
