Usually playing Tony Bennett's "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" on the jukebox is a cliché best left to tourist traps - but hearing the man born Anthony Benedetto sing his ode to S.F. feels right at Gino and Carlo, an old-school Italian joint in North Beach where diehard locals often outnumber visitors. Gino and Carlo is more of a neighborhood hangout than a trendy destination, the kind of place you go to drink fizzy American lager on tap, shoot pool on the two tables in back, and scope out the tributes by Frank Sinatra, Herb Caen, and other icons on the walls. This is the City as it used to be.

  • 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.'"
