Nomadic Pizza Throwdown, a Benefit for Japan Relief

Where:Coffee Bar, 1890 Bryant (at Mariposa), 551-8100

When: Fri., May 13, 6-9:30 p.m.

Cost: $12 admission; includes four pizza-tasting tokens, one drink token, and one voting token. For the hungry, there's also a $12 whole pizza token

The rundown: Pizza is now so popular here in the Bay it's supporting a whole subgenre of pop-up pie slingers, too. Next week at Coffee Bar, in a competition organizers are careful to tag "friendly," four peripatetic pizza makers go slice-to-slice, with proceeds earmarked for disaster relief in Japan. The four: Pizza Politana, Casey's, Copper Top Ovens, and Fist of Flour. It looks like guests will be the ones crowning a winner, via popular vote. Grrrr.

  • 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.'"
