Sausage Party 

Wednesday, May 26 2010
The Gallo Salame company is not exactly older than the hills, but it’s older than a lot of the coastline around here. When Gallo first started up, the name North Beach made sense, for example. Since then, its meat-grinders have ground on, producing traditional hard, peppered dry sausages, salame, and pepperoni, as well as low-fat and low-sodium (!?) versions. That’s it — no prosciutto, bresaola, or speck. This is the workhorse of the salumi world; the people’s meat, not a gourmet trend. However, Gallo Salame’s 100th Anniversary finds the company celebrating in a very “now” style: The Trattoria 1910 pop-up, an “Old World restaurant, re-created” special for the birthday. The good news, neither old-fashioned nor new-school, is that all the food is free.

  • 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.'"
