In a holiday redemption story worthy of the Hallmark Channel, Christophe Hille ― who left A16 in 2006 to seek farm-to-table fortune in New York, most recently at Northern Spy Food Co., which he co-owns with Nathan Foot ― was slated to start a two-night reunion this evening. Advance PR said he'd be manning A16's pizza oven, and collaborating with current chef Liza Shaw on a greatest-hits retrospective. But while Hille might have been looking forward to being back in the welcoming arms of the Bay Area (the Village Voice's Robert Sietsema found the food at Northern Spy to suffer from "a certain blandness" reminiscent of Berkeley's Chez Panisse), he'll have to wait. The blizzards that have crippled airports in the East ended up eighty-sixing Hille's flight. He's rescheduled for Jan. 17-18.

  • 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.'"
