A video hasn't made us this hungry since Jiro Dreams of Sushi.

Eat your way through China vicariously with the folks behind the Perennial Palate in this quick video, The Traveler's Republic of Tofu. Daniel Klein and Mirra Fine are the team behind prior gems such as For Udon and Country and From Japan With Love (and Dashi), and the latest video is a quick overview of everything they ate in China during two weeks of travel condensed into less than four minutes. We want everything in it, from the roast duck to the steamed buns to the bowls of noodle soup -- and will probably be ordering Chinese takeout for dinner tonight.

  • 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.'"
