  • A Marin Sun Farms butcher identified as "Miguel" was on the winning team for Eat Real's 2009 butchery contest.

Details are nonexistent, but it looks like meat cutters at Marin Sun Farms' wholesale butcher shop in the Dogpatch have walked out following an alleged disagreement with management. A call to the Tennessee Street facility brought neither confirmation nor denial, just a request to call Marin Sun Farms owner David Evans. (So far, no one from Marin Sun Farms has returned SFoodie's calls.) But in a call to Marin Sun Farms' retail counter in Rockridge, manager Chuck Traugott didn't deny the report of a butcher walkout, saying it hadn't affected the supply of meat to his shop. Based in West Marin, Marin Sun Farms is known for its commitment to sourcing pastured animals. The company supplies some of the city's most respected restaurants, places like Nopa, Zuni, and Jardiniere. It's unclear what effect any labor interruption would have on them.

  • 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.'"
