We've just launched a free iPhone app that takes all the goodness of our Best Of issues and crams it into your pants (or purse).

If you're just looking for something nearby, the app will lead to the best places that are closest. You can sort by neighborhood and quickly see, for example, the decent spots for chow where you are or where you plan to be. Finally, you can check in via Facebook once you've found the perfect spot.

Head to the iTunes store to see the app for yourself, or search for "Best Of" in the App Store. For those of you with Android phones, we'll have an app for you in April. In the meantime, non-iPhone users and desktop folks can check out our mobile Best Of... site.

  • 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.'"
