You weren't planning on skipping dessert today, were you? Because you'll be throwing that plan out the window after you feast your eyes on the pastry arts in Yigit Pura's new cookbook trailer. Eater alerts us to this pastry porn, which shows the assembly of a layered crepe cake brulee with poached pears and pistachio-cinnamon brittle in sumptuous, slow-motion, extra-delicious-looking detail.

Sweet Alchemy: Dessert Magic comes out in September from Chronicle Books, and is the Top Chef: Just Desserts winner's first cookbook. Meanwhile, I'll be spending my afternoon resisting the temptation to sneak up to Pura's jewelbox pastry shop, Tout Sweet, in Macy's Union Square, 1.5 blocks from SF Weekly's new offices. (Gotta stay strong. I'm attending a fried chicken pop-up tonight, after 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.'"
