  • Slinging tacos and heat: Morgan Maki.
Tonight's the first of a monthly convergence of food and liquor and jams at Amnesia. Bi-Rite butcher and charcutier Morgan Maki comes bearing Tacos and Fire this evening at about 7 p.m., serving up the first part of that equation: a chorizo-like crumble of rough-ground pork and chicken, browned and deglazed with Corona, then mashed up with roasted tomato and the herby kind of salsa verde (one taco for $3, two for $5), all spooned into tortillas. Maki says he has enough for about a hundred tacos. Similar food events are slated for Amnesia on the fourth Thursday of the month. Most other Thursdays, Maki plans to serve bar snacks and other nibbles, starting next week.

Tonight's fire? Maybe that's a reference to the drinks mixed up by Brendan Thomas and Josey Baker. Or no: Maki says the fire refers to the "sweet records" he and friends plan to unleash on Amnesia. By the way, Baker will soon begin offering his home-baked bread Thursdays at Amnesia (he's been selling it weekly at Gravel and Gold). Ask him about it tonight.

Amnesia: 853 Valencia (at Cunningham), 970-0012.

  • 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.'"
