The rundown: Don Bugito, the local "prehistoric snackeria," is responsible for all the insect street food treats that are sold at Off The Grid's Fort Mason market on Friday nights. They've been slowly converting locals to the nutritional benefits and mild flavors of bugs and now will arm home cookers with the knowledge to take it to their own kitchen.

  • 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.'"
