Unlike temporary food truck gatherings like Off the Grid or the more permanent pods in Portland, Ore., and Austin, Texas, SOMA StrEat Food Park feels like more than a parking lot for food trucks. It's separated from the street by a chain-link fence and plenty of greenery, and a feel-good soundtrack drowns out any noise from the adjacent freeway. Up to 10 trucks circle the perimeter like chuck wagons, and they change by the meal. Picnic tables are arranged in clusters that feel almost like rooms; most are housed in a red corrugated metal barn, which is heated. There's a bar, an ATM, bathrooms, two large TV screens, and a laid-back, almost festival-like atmosphere. Lunch is the busiest time at the park, when it caters to SOMA office workers, but there's a festive family scene on weekend afternoons as well. Though going with lots of people can be a hassle -- everyone has to scatter to order and wait for their own food at separate trucks -- it's a good option for adventurous eaters and indecisive groups.

  • 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.'"
