  • Off the Grid North Shattuck is expected to launch in a few weeks at the site of the Thursday farmers' market.

Well, well, well: The East Bay Express reports this morning that Off the Grid is expanding outside of San Francisco. Nearly a year after the first Off the Grid event pulled up to Fort Mason Center, the megapopular street food event is planning a weekly Wednesday night event in North Berkeley, on the strip of North Shattuck (at Rose) where the Thursday farmers' market unfolds. From the Express:

Organizer Matt Cohen is in the final stages of environmental health review from the city of Berkeley to launch a weekly Off the Grid street-food event Wednesday evenings in North Berkeley, on the stretch of North Shattuck at Rose, site of the Thursday farmers' market. Target launch date: Wed., June 1, though permitting delays might push the launch back to June 8.
Turns out Cohen foreshadowed OtG's East Bay expansion last December on SFoodie, in a 10-point prediction of how the Bay Area's street-food scene would expand in 2011.

  • 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.'"
