  • Brackers' cardamom-kissed sesame apple fig variety.

"Crunchy, like crackers -- filling, like bread!" The Daly City-based raw food company Amai Health Products takes the portmanteau to new heights with Brackers.

The snack features soaked and often sprouted seeds for quick, clean energy that doesn't lead to a crash or what the company describes as a sluggish "food fog." There are three flavors -- tostada, sundried tomato and chili chipotle with corn, and cardamom-kissed sesame apple fig -- and the latter stands head and shoulders above the rest with its complexity of sweet and aromatic flavors. All possess a crunch that invites fiendishness/gluttony and is hard to achieve in a raw snack.

Truthfully, these taste a lot more like crackers than bread, but the claim that they're filling is also accurate and the cardamom variety would make for a worthy accompaniment for preserves, cheese, or other typical bread toppers. Find 'em at Other Avenues.

  • 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.'"
