The Bay Area BBQ Championship went down Saturday, with 32 competitors throwing down their best 'cue in the parking lot at the Oakland Coliseum before an A's-Angels doubleheader.

The big winners? Big B's Down N Dirty of Pacifica was named Grand Champion, while Slap Yo Daddy of Diamond Bar was named Reserve Grand Champion. The Throwdown Champion was R & R BBQ, of San Jose, while the people's choice was Smoked Planet of Riverside.

We snapped pictures of some of the amazing meats on display at the event, which wasn't easy because our mouth was watering.

  • 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.'"
