The rundown: Chocolate used to be a hell of a lot more mysterious, back before single-source estate chocolates became the luxury standard. The sourcing and manufacturing process for artisan makers is far more transparent, even though the complexity remains. Peel back the foil on TCHO's process Wednesday, as company chocolatier Zohara Mapes delivers a narrative of the transformation from bean to bar. Here's how 18 Reasons describes it: "[Mapes] will show you (with all her cool gadgets) how chocolate gets made and in the process, show you how she spends her day. We will have plenty of chocolate on hand, since tasting is a big part of Zohara's 9-5." Nice work if you can get it.

  • 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.'"
