  • Starting in January, the Twirl and Dip truck will hit Marina Green and Golden Gate Park.

Other local mobile food vendors might get more media attention, but Twirl and Dip has just quietly put a lock on two major stops for six days a week in the city. The haute ice cream truck has signed a contract with San Francisco Recreation and Parks to serve frozen treats at Marina Green (near Scott Street) and in front of Golden Gate Park's rec field (between Seventh and Ninth Avenues) from noon to dusk (and after March, till 7 p.m.). The new schedule kicks off Jan. 15 at Marina Green; find the truck there on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, and at GGP on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. And don't come looking for Good Humor bars; instead expect lush fruitsicles, thick shakes, soft serve, and sundaes in creative flavors.

  • 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.'"
