  • In Ken Ken's first incarnation at Panchita's #3, it filled its signature ramen bowls with shredded chasu pork.

It might be time to get your chopstick case in order, ramen nerds: After a 6-week hiatus, it looks like Ken Ken Ramen is getting ready to announce the return of its noodle pop-up.

After launching in July, the trio of Robert Patterson, Stephan Roesch, and Kenji Miyazake were on their way to cult status for their Monday night appearances at Panchita's 3 in the Mission. By late September ― after disagreements with their landlord ― they were gone, but not before promising to pop up again elsewhere in the neighborhood. But after a series of promising tweets in early October, Ken Ken went quiet. Lately, though, the hints have revved up again, and with a new tone of confidence. "Full reboot coming soon!" Ken Ken tweeted late last week. Yesterday was devoted to "brainstorming," which included tossing a bone: "Coming back to the Mission," Ken Ken revealed. But when? And where?

  • 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.'"
