Think the Bay Area already has enough food media? Time to reconsider. Today NBC launched the Bay Area edition of its food site The Feast, under the editorship of SFoodie contributor Tamara Palmer. The first Feasts went beta in New York, Miami, Chicago, and L.A. last February; the S.F. site is the 11th in the network. Feast aggregates content from other food blogs, intersperses original content that skews heavily video, and sprinkles it all with Feast Rank, the site's proprietary restaurant scoring system (Eater dubbed it "a Rotten Tomatoes for the food world") ― it uses an algorithm that blends reviews from professional critics and opinions from amateur bloggers into a handy ranking. Feast's daddy: Ben Leventhal, the guy who founded Eater.com. Welcome to the frenzy, Feast.

  • 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.'"
