We began this year's SFoodie Advent Calendar on Dec. 1, long before dog-eared rolls of Christmas wrap found their way out of closets, or we'd assembled 2010's official holiday party outfit (thanks, H&M!), or even before we'd committed to our moms that sure, we'd be there on Dec. 25, bearing a side dish and a better attitude than last year. Since then, SFoodie's writers have pried open the tab on a single treat a day with a sense of mounting anticipation. So here, like that stash of holiday treats you've managed ― somehow ― to hide from your spouse or partner, we offer the collected swag of December's daily Advent Calendar reveals. Thanks to Lou Bustamante, Tamara Palmer, Laura Beck, Irvin Lin, and Jonathan Kauffman, who joined me in scouring the city and the East Bay for the season's best. Merry Christmas everybody!

  • 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.'"
