​By now you may have heard the bad news about Kool Herc, one of hip-hop's founding fathers: He needs a stent from a recent kidney stone removed, but doesn't have health insurance. Father Herc has to throw down a hefty deposit to get the medical work done.

To help out, both locations of S.F.'s Papalote Mexican Grill are donating 10 percent of today's proceeds to Herc's healthcare fund. See the full details on our sister blog, SFoodie, and find a reminder of why Herc is so regarded after the jump.

  • 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.'"
