Bowl Us Over 

Wednesday, Jan 23 2013
Second to Thanksgiving, Super Bowl Sunday is America’s favorite day of overindulgence. This “holiday” of gluttony includes van-sized televisions, 30-packs of cheap beer, and lots of foods cooked in oil and covered with cheese. What is this perfection equation missing, you ask? Heavy metal! Join other like-minded folks for a metal-themed cooking battle at the fifth annual Stupor Bowl Heavy Metal Chili Cookoff. The contest is limited to 20 contestants (they are still accepting submissions; e-mail to enter), and is judged during halftime. All chilis must be at least four quarts, served in a crockpot, and given a heavy metal title (last year’s winner was “Nordic Flesh Feast”). If chili’s not your bowl, guests are welcome to bring something else to share. DJ Foodcourt provides the tunes for the event, but hopefully not during the game or the high-budget commercials.

  • 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.'"
