  • Sorry, baseball fans: This won't be happening Wednesday in Civic Center Plaza.

Wednesday's victory parade for the world-champion San Francisco Giants is sure to have plenty of pomp, emotion, and "Let Timmy Smoke" T-shirts, but there's one thing it won't have: food trucks.

At last night's Jumbotron broadcast of Game 5 in Civic Center, Off the Grid's Matt Cohen was able to round up a posse of food trucks: Chairman Bao, Señor Sisig, Sam's ChowderMobile, and Twirl & Dip. But tomorrow, for the crowds piling into Civic Center Plaza at lunchtime to watch the city's favorite collection of misfits and castoffs palm the key to the city? Officials have said no. Concerns about excessive crowds, we hear.

Really? Did no city official show up at this year's S.F. Street Food Festival?

  • 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.'"
