With all the drama swirling around JapaCurry this week, the food has sort of been lost. But you can check out Jay Hamada's take on katsu and other curries Monday in SOMA, in what should be less charged surroundings, when JapaCurry makes a guest appearance with The Rib Whip BBQ truck on tiny Ritch Street. The Rib Whip's Ryan Gessel says Monday's a trial balloon of sorts, seeing how the neighborhood takes to the occasional food truck jamboree. Gessel's next move: A first Friday multitruck food pod in his lot on Ritch, starting at happy hour, and with actual beer. "We're going to give it a go," says Gessel, who has his eye on March 4 as a kickoff date. Meanwhile, let's hope Alison Rowe doesn't, uh, coincidentally find she needs to park her car in SOMA on Monday.

When: Mon., Feb. 7, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., or until the food runs out

  • 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.'"
