  • CupKates' peanut butter chocolate and red velvet cupcakes, $3 each.

Word of advice: If you want a double chocolate cupcake from the CupKates truck, get in line within an hour after it opens.

Double chocolate was the first to sell out by 12:50 p.m. today at Off the Grid: Civic Center. Mulling options? Red velvet is better than peanut butter chocolate (all cupcakes $3). Frosting is done with a heavy hand, which looks pretty but can prove unwieldy in the great outdoors.

Outgoing supe Chris Daly was seen rushing past the Off the Grid trucks, but didn't get in line in for cupcakes or any other grub. Pity!

  • 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.'"
