The SF BBQ Rib Throwdown

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

When: Sunday, July 3, 4-7:30 p.m.

Cost: $20

The rundown: It's the 4th of July weekend, when many a young one's fancy turns to thoughts of meat and beer. This Sunday you can skip your buddy's private BBQ with the overcooked meat pucks and Natty Light in favor of a rib throwdown featuring four powerhouse contenders from both sides of the bay. Starting at 4 p.m., Good Foods Catering, Cathead's BBQ, the Jetset Chef, and Gator's Back Porch BBQ will go head-to-head, vying for that sauce-slicked rib crown. Your $20 admission gets you four samples of ribs, four side dishes, one Lagunitas or glass of wine, and a chance to vote. It's practically your patriotic duty.

  • 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.'"
