The rundown: Never heard of her? Pity. Niloufer Ichaporia King is the behind-the-scenes bubbe of Bay Area Parsi cooking, a source of inspiration for Foreign Cinema's Gayle Pirie and John Clark, Hayes Street Grill's Patty Unterman, and above all Alice. In fact, every spring ― for Parsi New Year ― King orchestrates a holiday dinner at Chez Panisse more exclusive than a seat at Willie's table at Le Central. No, SFoodie's never been; you've never been. You can, however, catch a whiff of cumin-scented magic when King appears at Omnivore Saturday afternoon.

  • 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.'"
