Brian Kimball of Magic Curry Kart and Roger Feely of Soul Cocina are bonded by more than the love of good street food; they were also born on the same day. The two have pushed the boundaries of what chefs without restaurants can do. Kimball teaches cooking classes and has his own line of curry pastes and chili sauces that are distributed throughout Northern California, while Feely cooks up elaborate meals for home delivery via Luke's Local and organizes events that mingle food and music. Next Friday (June 21), they'll host Back Alley Jubilee on June 21, a Burmese-centric street food meal held in a secret location somewhere between the Bay Bridge and Sutro Tower.

Magic Curry Kart's Latest Special: Panties

The full menu is still in progress but will include khoa suey, parcels of Burmese tea leaf salad, and spicy samosas. People can indicate whether they'd like vegan or vegetarian options when purchasing tickets ($35).

The event is secret, but it won't be silent. Local singer Micropixie and electric guitar experimentalist the Genie will provide sonic ambience.

Four years after Magic Curry Kart and Soul Cocina made their debuts in a back alley of the Mission, the ideas are arriving full circle.

  • 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.'"
