Coltrane's Baptism, a Jazzy Number at Yoshi's

We checked out an awesome concert at Yoshi's San Francisco earlier this week, and one of the notes that lingered afterward was the memory of our cocktail. We considered musically-inspired options such as Thelonious Drop, Blueberi Brubeck, and Berry Cannonball before settling on Coltrane's Baptism (Don Q Rum, Mathilde Creme de Framboise, lemon, basil, ginger beer, and soda). What could easily have been a too-sweet concoction turned out to be a surprisingly sophisticated blend, thanks to the basil and ginger beer, even as its dual hues make it look like a typical girlie drink.

  • 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.'"
