Show Preview: Dirty Projectors 

Wednesday, Sep 22 2010

If you've yet to experience Brooklyn sextet Dirty Projectors live, just know this: They're the kind of musical mavericks the Queen of Kook, Björk, performs with in New York bookstores; they once collaborated with that other eccentric legend, David Byrne; and one of their seven albums is entirely dedicated to reinterpreting Black Flag's Damaged (in a manner that sounds absolutely nothing like Black Flag). Embracing both folksy aesthetics and arthouse experimentalism, their far-reaching vision encompasses so many musical genres and eras that they are impossible to classify. On Sept. 28, they're releasing an expanded edition of last year's masterful album, Bitte Orca.

    The San Francisco Street Food Festival was another success this year. Dozens of vendors with original, unheard-of creations, such as deep fried mac and cheese on a stick, black pea paste pancakes, and Korean quesadillas. Then there was the comfort foods we've grown accustomed to, like creme bruleé, shrimp rolls, and pound cake. Photographs by Mabel Jimenez.
