Rapper Lyrics Born is one of the amateur restaurant reviewers on the latest episode of KQED's Check, Please! The station's food blog Bay Area Bites reports that Lyrics Born (aka Tom Shimura) and two other local residents discuss Chinese spot Hunan Home's Restaurant, the locally sourced food at Radius, and Berkeley pop-up haven Guerilla Cafe. Each guest visited all three restaurants and will present their honest opinions. No word on whether Lyrics Born will offer his in rhyme form.

  • 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.'"
