Beyond the Wrapped Wiener 

Wednesday, Jan 6 2010
One of the few bright spots of last summer’s widely attended and critically panned Great American Food and Music Fest in Mountain View was the appearance of Zingerman’s Deli of Ann Arbor, Mich. Zingerman's was one of few vendors to bring enough food to feed the hungry hordes, satiating angry attendees with perfectly crisp shards of Nueske’s applewood-smoked bacon. Last year, Zingerman’s co-founder, Ari Weinzweig, released his third and most epic book, Zingerman’s Guide to Better Bacon: Stories of Pork Bellies, Hush Puppies, Rock 'n' Roll Music, and Bacon Fat Mayonnaise. This deli-centered book is so dedicated to the bacon, in fact, that a limited pigskin leather–encased collector’s edition was produced — a luxury not afforded to Weinzweig’s previous food tomes. While illness caused the author to cancel a Bay Area appearance to promote this book in November (we’re trying to resist the flu joke), he is now set to appear in the flesh with a ration of easy bacon ideas.

  • 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.'"
