Shauna Des Voignes' brioche is so opulent that it's best consumed in parsimonious slices. And warm, too, so that each pale gold slice develops crumbly brown edges and the slice leaches flecks of melted butter onto any surface it's laid on. Her brioche is a savory cake, fine-grained and rich without being dense. It calls out for warm honey or perhaps a smear of peach preserves -- or even nothing at all.

  • 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.'"
